I have a service on my phone that backups data on my Windows8 PC. The PC can be connected to the private network via Ethernet or Wireless and the PC should be always reachable from my service (via hostname possibly).
I have some problems:
- My Android (my MacBook behave the same) resolves the IP, but if I switch to Ethernet my backup service keeps trying to connect to the previous WiFi IP. Can't understand if it is a network (ARP cache?) problem and how to solve it.
- As a solution I thought to configure the same IP address for both the PC WiFi and Ethernet adapters so that no matter what the resolved IP is always correct. But Windows seems to go crazy every time that I do it (while it should be supported by any SO).
- I don't want to remember all the times to disconnect one network once I connect the other. I'd like to set the WiFi to be excluded when the Ethernet is plugged.
Are these issues resolvable on Windows?
