Hello! 

I've noticed Animate generate a local web service for test canvas proposes letting us access trow default local IP 127.0.0.1  and in my case port: 1521 


Example: http://127.0.0.1:1521/estovaquedarhorrendo.html?73044831

 

To avoid upload to test on my phone or other local devices I've tried to change the local IP address to my computer's local network IP, but none of my devices can reach it. 

Anyone have a clue or have tried it and get it to work? 

 

Any help, clue, or even a joke would be appreciated! 

Thanks!

if you're testing on anything other than the computer with animate running, just upload the published files to a file server and test those uploaded files.

I explored the localhost situation since files do not work if for example you just open the html file directly from a file explorer. I created a localhost and it worked but my company decided to us Microsoft Azure for our testers.

I hope this helps.
