    Trying to get Android to open internal hosted Espresso site

    I am trying to get an Android device to open our Espresso website which is internally hosted. If I use http://name/name it says the page is not available. If I use the ip address it just hangs for ages before closing the web browser. I have entered the proxy settings and the bypass info.

    Anyone got this working.

    Do you have a local DNS entry for http://name/name? and are your DHCP settings configured to have an internal DNS server as the primary? Firewall settings on the server maybe?

    -edit -
    Just tested a local site from my S4, via IP i can hit the site but it then gets grumpy, something incorrect with DNS for me - works from mac/pc/ipad though...


    -edit 2-
    After some more testing appears to be a know android issue. have you tried using the FQDN? using this i was able to hit the site i'm testing with.

    No info in DNS on server but this is not an issue for windows clients. Do I need to add it? if so, how?

    Another thing I have noticed is I am not able to enter a * in the proxy bypass and the espresso address users a ~ symbol which I can not enter.

    Espresso gave me these to try

    Just pulled another Android unit out and that works fine. Must be a dodgy unit.
