I’ve set up a new Seafile server on my home LAN and it works great except for one problem. I’m not sure if this is a server problem, a network problem, or a Seadroid problem. Any thoughts will be appreciated.
When my phone is connected to the Internet via my carrier’s LTE network, Seadroid works flawlessly (so far). When I connect my phone via WiFi to the same LAN as the server, things get flakey. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Mostly it doesn’t work.
- Login rarely works. The usual result is for the app to spin for a while and then display “Network Error”
- Sync/Folder/File operations usually fail (but not always). The usual result is for the app to spin for a while and then display “Error when loading file/folder/libraries” “Tap to refresh.”
- Sometimes (maybe half the time) the error message is accompanied by an Android toast message that says “Network Error.”
My laptop, connected to the same LAN via the same WiFi access point, has no difficulty connecting to and syncing with the Seafile server either via the web interface or via the Seafile client (that I am aware of).
Anyone have any thoughts on what might be going on?
- Seafile server is 7.0.4 running on Mint 19.1 (aka Ubuntu 18.04). Apache2 is proxying all communication. HTTP requests are redirected to HTTPS.
- Seadroid is 2.2.18 running on Android version 9 (Pie)
- Seafile Client is 7.0.2
