By doing quite some debugging I found that BluOS uses mDNS for its auto discovery and setup. (For some reason this is nowhere mentioned in the supplied documentation of BluOS. At least, when I search for things like "unable to connect to BluOS" I can't find anything related to mDNS.)
mDNS (and Bonjour) are multicast protocols. Unfortunately, some of my networks block multicast due to security reasons. I know the IP address of my BluOS device and I can connect to the webserver of the BluOS device from my phone or other device connected to the network. But as multicast is blocked, I can't seem to be able to connect the BlueOS app to my device.
Is there any way to connect the app to the device without having to rely on multicast?
