If you cannot connect the phone to the pc, there can be many problems depending on your network or computer installation.


First off all check the local installation on the PC.

Open the internet explorer and type in:




The explorer should answer with a number like:



If not basic things do not work.

Then check the httpQ settings.


If you see the number, maybe the port is closed or you use a wrong IP (Subnet) or there is a proxy set.

To check this, you can download a test program: IPView (Click here to download)

Unpack the zip, copy the file in a directory and start the IPView.exe.

Click “Connect to Server” with all the IPS you can select.

Also you can open the specified port on the PC.

Retry it on the phone.


If the IPView program works, but the phone not, maybe a firewall blocks the phone or your WLAN router does not permit the communication between the devices. In this case you must ask your administrator or a friend to help you.
