Compatibility > Router > 2 computers + 2 Lima + 2 accounts but 1 network

Hi !

Is it possible to have on the same router/network 2 computers and 2 Lima and 2 accounts totaly dissociated ?

Because I would like to have 2 hard drives totally independent and private but on the same router.

Thank you !

From the support docs, yes. You would have to do 2 port forwards on your router. If I read the spec correctly, you can have up to 4 on the same router.

#1 Enable (UPnP IGD or NAT-PMP) on your Internet router

Nearly all Internet routers support some kind of automatic port mapping protocol, such as UPnP IGD or NAT-PMP. These standard protocols make it possible for applications and devices to become visible and reachable from the Internet. They are widely used by many applications (IP telephony, videogames, file sharing) and Internet-of-Things devices. Lima will use these protocols as well if they are available.

You can make sure automatic port mapping is enabled through the Web interface of your router. Once enabled, Lima devices will no longer stay in "relay" mode, although it may take several minutes for the change to be effective.

If you do not know if your router supports automatic port mapping, please contact your Internet provider which should be able to help you. A search on your favorite web search engine might help too.

#2 Redirect manually the TCP port 25211

You can configure your router to automatically redirect TCP port 25211 to your Lima device. You can identify a Lima device by its MAC address (it must start with '80:0E:24').

If you own multiple Lima devices, you may use any port between 25211 and 25215. For example, redirect port 25211 to your first Lima device and port 25212 to the second one. The Lima devices will automatically detect the redirection although it may take 5 to 10 minutes.

#3 Other tips

While transferring your data from your smartphone to your Lima, we recommend to keep your Lima app open in the foreground, to unlock the "auto-lock" feature of your smartphone, and to put your smartphone on charge.

Try # 1, if it does not work then undo and try # 2.
