UMMU Multi Server


Set up of the UMMU Multi Server is vey similar to that of the UMMU Server. The Multi server allows you to connnect up to 8 iOS devices to one console. The check box adjacent to the iOS Device IP enables that particular device.

This opens up a wealth of opportunities for personal monitoring controlled by iOS devices.

Q. My iOS device sends OK to the console, but not the other way round...
A. You don't have the right IP address entered in UMMU Server. If you do have this entered correctly, check that your Firewall isn't blocking UDP from UMMU Server. If necessary, perform a hard-reset on your iOS device (Hold down 'Home' and t'Power' for > 10 seconds. On some devices it's 'Volume Down' and 'Power' for > 10 seconds. You'll see the Apple logo appear...).
