I've tried this very new Alfred remote thing. It makes me excited. But I currently found that I could only connect via "direct"
I've done the suggested steps, checking the network, no firewall running, restarting both devices.
I am able to connect using "direct", but my IP addresses are not static (an office Wi-Fi network). I do observe that the "Router" address of my MAC and my phone are not the same.
Here are my answers to the troubleshooting questions.
1. Same Network?
IPv4 : 18.104.22.168
Subnet Mask : 255.255.240.0
Router : 22.214.171.124
