MobileSheetsPro on Chromebook displays incorrect IP address
#2
Chromebooks are a little interesting because they have a built-in firewall and the way they handle network may also involve a NAT. When MobileSheetsPro looks up the local IP address, it iterates over all available network interfaces and uses the first IPv4 address that is found that isn't the loopback address. It's possible with Chromebook that there are multiple network interfaces involved. Regardless, broadcasting is blocked by the firewall, so you won't see a connection pop-up on the PC running the companion app. This means you need to use the Connection->Manual WiFi Connect option in the companion application. Just enter the correct IP address when doing that and it should all work. Let me know if that is not the case.
