Can't Open Perspective Session on Mobile Device


Firstly, congratulations and thank you to Inductive Automation for the Maker Edition of Ignition! I can’t wait to start developing my home automation system and share with the rest of the community.

I downloaded, fresh installed Maker, created a project based on one of the templates and was able to launch the session on the local computer the gateway is running on using http://localhost:8088/data/perspective/client/P_Menu_Nav/.

Unfortunately, when I try as similar address (http://{ip address of pc running gateway}:8088/data/perspective/client/P_Menu_Nav/) on my iphone using safari, the page does not load.

Anyone have any ideas?

If this is on a Windows PC, you will likely have to add an inbound firewall rule for Ignition (tcp ports 8088/8043). Then you’ll be able to access it from other devices on your network.


That did the trick, thanks Kevin!

For the benefit of others, this is what I needed to do on my Windows 10 PC:

  1. Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Defender Firewall -> Advanced settings
  2. Select Inbound Rules in the left pane then right click then select New Rule...
  3. Select the Port radio button -> Next
  4. Select TCP radio button
  5. Select Specific local ports and type 8088, 8043 -> Next
  6. Follow the rest of the wizard

Oh, just figured out… Its on the Mobile app, need to use Gateway address:8088, select project and it will start working…
