1 possible answer(s) on “[Question] – Running app without ngrok tunnel

  1. Hi @dittmarconsulting,

    Yes, it’s possible to run Viro w/o ngrok.

    If you’re using the Viro Media App:
    On iOS:

    1. If your phone and computer are on the same network, you can type in your local IP address.

    On Android:

    1. You can also use your local IP address.
    2. You can reverse tether using the command adb reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081 and simply use the localhost address: 127.0.0.1 in the Viro Media App.

    If you’re building your app through Xcode:

    1. in AppDelegate.m, change the line BOOL usingNgrok = YES; to BOOL usingNgrok = NO;, this will default to using local IP (this is automatically detected and “sent” to the built app).

    If you’re building your app through Android Studio:

    1. You should reverse tether using the command adb reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081 and simply build and run the application.

    Let me know if you need help or more clarification!
