Troubleshooting tips

  • Universal access URL is invalid?

First, make sure the iHost and the PC/Pad/Phone side are on the same LAN.

If the universal access URL is still invalid, please find out the iHost IP address by visiting the backend of the router and then entering the corresponding IP address on your browser to access.

  • Failed to visit the dashboard?

First, make sure the iHost and the PC/Pad/Phone side are on the same LAN.

If you are running an older Windows version or have a stricter network configuration, you might need to access cast at http://ihost/cast or http://X.X.X.X/cast (replace X.X.X.X with your iHost’s IP address)
