Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality.

If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Network Connection via USB connection

How does the network connection work when the Hololens is connected to the PC via USB?
In Visual Studio, the network ip address to run on remote machine is "", which is localhost - the loopback address for the PC.

Here's what I want to do: Open a TCP Client connection inside a Hololens app to talk to a TCP Server running on the PC, all through USB.
I have the exact same scenario working over Wifi no problem - I'm just not sure what IP address the Hololens should use to talk to the PC over USB.

Any ideas?
