Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

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.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. 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. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Cannot connect to device portal over wifi

Hi There,

This is a new issue for me, I cannot seem to connect to the device portal tonight over wifi (through a web-browser). Using the IP address on the device under Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Advanced Options I receive this web-browser response:

This site can’t be reached
IP-Address took too long to respond.

I first noticed the issue when I tried deploying an app to the device this evening and it failed to do so through VS2015. Any help would be appreciated. I have reset the device and the ip address is correct for connecting over wifi.

I am able to connect to the device portal locally via USB while plugged in to http://127.0.0.1:10080. Oddly though I am not able to connect via my desktop however on a second laptop I was able to connect locally.

This site can’t be reached
127.0.0.1 refused to connect.
Try:
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Thanks,
Jason

    Fixed the issue. Turns out another one of my Microsoft accounts connected to the device. By removing the 2nd account and restarting the device my issue was resolved. Hope this helps whoever may run into a similar issue.

  • Greetings!
    Can you please be more percise of what you did to solve the issu? I have the same error, and I think the cause is the same. But Im not sure which accounts you handled.

  • Hi @MEDIT, from what I recall, I believe I removed the offending account directly from the control panel settings of the operating system on the HoloLens itself.
