Hi all, I'm new and hope someone might be able to help with my query.

I've researched Calibre and have connected my iPad to the Calibre server via the app eBook Search with no problems (haven't yet set up the server to run on startup via the task scheduler but that's on my to do list). However I seem to be hitting a wall with my Kindle Paperwhite.

So, I thought I would be able to access my books by using the experimental browser on the PW. But when I enter the address all I get is text (xml or html I think?) and not the nice Calibre screen with the icons etc. I also tested it on the laptop to make sure it wasn't a problem with the PW but I get the same text like this:

Code:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<feed xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/" xmlns:opds="http://opds-spec.org/2010/catalog" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
  <title>calibre Library</title>
So my question, is this happening because the port is being used by my ipad/ebooksearch app and wont allow any more connections? Or is it because of some other reason?

And if only one device can be connected to the server, I was wondering are there any other workarounds that would allow me to wirelessly connect my PW?

Thanks in advance for any help

The url you enter on the PW has to end with /browse not /opds
