Kindle Fire HD 10 calibre companion

I have used Calibre for several years. I was previously using a Kindle Fire HDX but the battery blew and i haven't fixed it yet. I bought a Kindle Fire HD 10 and I can't connect wireless or to the content server. I get a 'failed to connect' on calibre companion. I will be pretty bummed if i can't use calibre any more

Are you sure you are on the same network (and the same speed)?
Are you trying as a Wireless device or just the content server (mode)?

I have tried wirelessly and as content server. Content server never works. It says I haven't started the server. I can very occasionally get connected wirelessly. Then I get either 10053 or 10054 errors in Calibre. I have tried in safe mode as well as turning off my firewall and Windows defender.

And, yes on the same network. I sit about 5 feet from the router.

My question was more about Multi-band (a,b,g,n) routers.

But I see from the log, you are getting kicked off.
The usual culprit is a firewall or antivirus...BUT you say Defender and that plays nice for me.
I would suggest you update Calibre 3.38.1 is the latest, even thought I don't recall a problem with Kindle Fire being fixed.
Are you sure you don't have another A/V running?


Can you use the normal browser on the fire to get to the content server

enter IPort in the address bar (the default port is 8080)

I changed the inbound rules to public as well as private and now everything is working.

It should be Private. Public tightens the firewall to prevent inbound attacks.
