Re: Adding mports manually

Yes, it's in place. I can't do a screen shot from here but I'll go through the steps.
1. Find IP address of mPort. You can do this either from your dhcp server, a network scan, or a local mFi installation.
2. Visit your mPort in your browser. It will ask you to login.
3. Once you're logged in you can enter a hostname for the mFi controller software. You'll also need to enter the username and password you use to login to your mFi server.
I set this up in my house on Saturday as I don't want to leave a computer on at home. It all worked very nicely for me.

Hostname or IP address for mFi controller and TCP port (like 192.168.1.254:9080)
Yes, this work, but need to implement simply add mPort by IP Man Wink
