ControlR works from inside your local network and assists you in managing your unRAID servers.   Features: - Manage multiple servers from a beautiful user interface - Manage docker

UPDATE: We found the root cause of the issue !!! 🙌   Can't thank enough @Dantheman and Peter (don't have his handle), for the patience and willingness to help me test and troubleshoo

@jbrodriguez My son has decided he doesn't like your app. He was giving me some lip so I threatened to shut off Plex. *Click* Plex Docker was shut off from the comfort of my couch and no more videos f

Would also be nice if the 1st page server name/ip would have the background like you do when selected and are viewing drives.

 

Just a suggestion

 

Otherwise nice app

Thanks !

 

Yes that should be possible, I'll see if I can make it optional.

I've published v1.1.3 (should be available in the Play Store soon), with the following changes:

 

- Fix display of disk info (second cache, unmountable, etc.)

- Validate input for ip and port

- Display app version in Libraries page

- Bug fixes and improvements

 

Additionally, I set up a page to receive feature requests and feedback: https://feedback.userreport.com/b5864402-1922-4c3e-810c-0e427f4d204a/

 

I've started the list with docker support, add any others.

Going to hold off on this for a bit till VM management is fully implemented, as that is where the bulk of my unRAID use is. I would also be very interested if the ability to simultaneously/securely/remotely access multiple unRAID servers running on different networks via the app ever came to fruition. Might be asking for way too much, but it would surely be a selling point for me.

 

That being said, I will definitely be keeping my eye on this one.

Good job, looking good so far!

Thanks ryoko227 !

 

VM management is one of the top feature requests.

 

Remote access has been also requested.

 

I'll look into it.

I bought this today. I can't seem to get it to connect to my unraid box. First tried automatic and it couldn't find anything. I tried with user/password and without. Then I tried manual and put my server's ip address and same result. No server added. Any advice? My phone is connected to my network, I can get to my box through a browser.

 

Edit: forgot to add, my server is running 6.1.9

After the last update I can no longer search for server with automatic. A message saying: Check your input. IP address and/or port are invalid.

 

I cleared both data and cache, but still the same message.

Hi Kewjoe,

 

Currently, it's supposed to work from inside the lan network (internal wifi).

 

One question .. when you go to the manual tab, does it show an ip address or the field appears blank ?

 

Let me know.

saarg, the same question ... you are on your internal wifi right ?

 

In the manual tab, is an ip address pre-populated or is it blank ?

Yes internal Wifi.

The IP is populated with the address of the tablet, and also in the correct IP range. Sent you a PM with more info and screenshot.

Hi, I just pushed 1.1.4 (takes a while to roll out on the Play store)

 

I made a fix to the ip/port validation routine (when adding servers).

 

The ip should be entered without http://, just the ip number.

 

Kewjoe, do you have bridge enabled on your server ?

 

 

Link to post

No, not using bridge on my router. Have it set to Wireless Router (the other options are Repeater, Access Point and Media Bridge).

 

I updated the app. Tried auto, it went through all the ip address on my subnet. Didn't find my server. Tried manual, added my server's IP (with no http) and it didn't find it either.

 

My router is an Asus RT-AC66U running AsusWRT-Merlin 380.57.

I think he meant on you unraid server in network settings  :)

Kewjoe,

 

I've been discussing with saarg an issue he had adding one of his servers.

 

We seem to agree that it's due to the timeout I've set to wait for a server's answer.

 

It's currently set at half a second.

 

If the server doesn't answer before that half a second, then the app thinks it's down.

 

I believe this is what happening to you too.

 

I've been thinking about how to manage this and what I'll do is increase the timeout for Manual mode (I'll set it to 10 seconds) and leave the timeout at half a second for Automatic mode, but it will be customizable in the Settings.

 

I'll release an update soon.

Hi, I've released v1.1.5 on the Play Store (normal roll out times apply)

 

I've set the following default timeouts, when detecting a new server:

Manual mode: 10 seconds (10000 ms)

Automatic mode: 0.5 seconds (500 ms)

 

Both values are configurable and should be expressed in milliseconds.

Hi I am interested in getting this app. I would like it if it was also compatible with android tv so i can also run on my shield in the bedroom.

 

Just one thing can you explain the app permissions

 

This app has access to:

Photos / Media / Files
Uses one or more of: files on the device such as images, videos or audio, the device's external storage

 

I guess this is if the app needs to be moved to sd card?

 

Wi-Fi connection information
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and names of connected Wi-Fi devices

 

This is self explanitory !

 

Device ID & call information
Allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active and the remote number connected by a call

 

This is the permission i am not sure can you explain why this is necessary.  I am sorry i hope this question doesn't sound rude but having just read about mobile device app security and the recent Runkeeper data privacy leak I just wanted to ask  :)
