Gears Lite Connection
Use the steps below to establish a connection between the Gears Lite iPad application and the Gears Golf desktop application.
1. Connect the desktop machine and iPad to the same network.
2. In the Gears Golf desktop application, start the local server.
3. In Gears Lite iPad application, enter the connection information.
4. Accept the connection.
The above connection will last until the local server running on the desktop application is stopped (or the desktop application is stopped). If the iPad application is stopped (and the desktop server remains running) you can reconnect by tapping the system from the list above the connection inputs.
Trouble shooting connections
If the allow connection popup doesn’t appear in the desktop application (after clicking Connect System in the iPad application) – and you have confirmed the ip, port, and code are correct – then there is likely a firewall blocking the connection.
To allow communication through the Windows firewall between the iPad and desktop applications, close the Gears desktop application and follow the steps below.
After completing the above steps restart the desktop application and attempt the connection again. If it still doesn’t work then restart the computer and follow the above steps again to confirm the firewall changes were properly saved. If they were and the connection still doesn’t work, then your network firewall may be blocking the connection. Speak with your ISP or IT professional to fix this. If you continue to experience problems, please contact support.
