Shared Experience: Change server address dynamically
I am currently working on a shared experience application. And I am using the "sharing" prefab provided in the HoloToolkit, and it works well following the course 240.
However, a big issue is that every time I launch the sharingservice.exe under different network, I need to rebuild the app and redeploy it onto all the HoloLens just to change the server address.
I heard about the solution of using static IP with the same router and the solution of putting my laptop's host name as server address. But I am facing the situation that I need to run the sharingservice.exe on different laptop AND under different networks (router) every time.
The only solution I can think of is to set up a cloud service (not applicable in my case), or give user the interface to change the server address dynamically in the application.
So I am wondering if anyone has tried out changing the server address dynamically in the app? Or is it even possible with the given scripts in the "sharing" prefab?
