In order to connect to my Android Galaxy 10.1 tab, I'm trying to use WiFi Explorer, which sets up the tablet as being a file server on the WiFi LAN, accessable by local IP address.
The app says that I can connect to my tablet from my Ubuntu desktop computer by going to 192.168.0.21:8000. But whenever I try that address in my browser, it says "Unable to connect".
I think this is because of the way my WiFi network is set up. I have an Aterm router which does not have a WiFi option on it. Connected to that is a Logitec wireless router.
So the connection I am trying to make is:
Ubuntu Desktop -> Aterm Router -> Logitec Wireless router -> tablet device
I think what's happening is that the Logitec is assigning the IP address to the tablet, so the Aterm router doesn't know about it, and the Desktop can't find it.
How do I go from my Desktop, though my routers, to talk to the tablet at it's assigned IP address (it's using static IP, by the way)?
