My apologies fo the slow reply. For some reason I was expecting an email notification that I'd gotten a reply. Now I know.

/sbin/ifconfig shows only a single IP, with multicast enabled. There are about 6 other network devices, but none of them have an IPv4 address. I tried enabling IPv6 on my home network recently, but I think that was mainly a base station change.

en1: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULT ICAST> mtu 1500
ether f8:1e:df:db:9c:33
inet6 fe80::fa1e:dfff:fedb:9c33%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5
inet 172.16.1.10 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 172.16.1.255
media: autoselect
status: active

I made sure the firewall was off. I checked netstat for any other apps set to the same port number, but didn't find any.

Changing the port to 9004, 9091 and 12345 didn't seem to make a difference.

I assume that means I'll need to specify the computer's IP address in the Calibre Companion app. That's not as convenient, but if it's a choice between typing in an IP address and not having it work, I know what I'll choose

Thanks,

This may not help as you have no ability to configure the (property owners) Access point.
Does your reading device get an IP in the same block 167.20.xx.yy

You won't necessarily need to use a fixed IP address. Because of the problems with bonjour (and there are many), we built a quick & dirty UDP broadcast scheme that CC uses to find calibre in addition to bonjour. This was released around a month ago, and immediately the CC connection problems plummeted. The success of this scheme is why I am willing to make bonjour failure non-fatal.

The 'non-fatal bonjour error' fix is in calibre's 'trunk', available now if you run from source.

it works!

Drag and drop stopped working (shocking for a Mac). I ended up having to wipe and re-install the operating system. Not my preferred method of fixing problems, but it ended up fixing Calibre! I just sent a handful of books to my Nexus 7. It was beautiful.

Sorry to waste everyone's time with what turned out to be a system problem.


Regards,
Erik

Sometimes I think that computing is hopeless. Can you imagine the outcry if your home heating worked like PCs? Your apartment will be warm enough only if you power off your microwave oven and turn off then on all the lights in the right order.

Sigh....
