Hi All,

I am unable to connect my browser to iRET.
I have installed iRET on iPhone 6+ [9.0] and tried accessing it on my Chrome, firefox and IE.

Able to ping device IP address but unable to open iRET on any of the browsers. Says “ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED”

Can anybody help me in this.

Thanks in prior.
