Here is the cryptic message I received from Philippe:
I did finally manage to get the configuration file changed and can now load the server file using my IP address and the COM port for the Velleman K8090 card (COM3). The server file appears to run correctly (no error indicated) but the iPad app does not find the server in my PC. I did set the IP address in the app to the same IP address for the PC. When I attempt to switch a relay ON or OFF, I get an error window that says “Server Not Responding”. Any ideas on what that problem might be?
I am using the iPad through my home wireless network, if that has any bearing on the problem.
I still need an answer. I am very anxious to get this iPad app running. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.
One would expect the app to run out of the box without having to resort to contacting the designer. Every other app I have loaded worked without this step.
Please help me resolve this issue.

Subj: Re: Apple iPad APP problem
How can I verify port usage and how can I change that if it is a problem? Is that the port in the PC? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

verify if the port 2233 is not in use by other apps.
Thank you for your help.
