current scenario for connecting to Local server
as every Blynker here tried Local server we all know that he must change to custom server settings and define his local IP and port.
lets assume the user want to access his local server from outside he will need to open port - port forwarding - in his router to exposed the server to outside world.
and he must again change the custom server setting to the wan IP of his local server.
purposed new way
- app will have two destination settings for local server , normal local IP combined with SSID of home network for example.
so the the app will connect to the assigned IP and port if the phone connected to SSID called XXXX.
- and also there will be one more server setting while you are not at same network of your local server is.
and that can be an IP if your lucky and have a dedicated or static IP address , or you can use any free Dynamic DNS service.
- in the server itself you can integrate the DynDNS or Duck DNS- which is free - so user can configure it from the Admin UI of Blynk server.
mainly it should be something similar to the Pic below
“please don’t show this to the great UIX person on Blynk maybe he will commit suicide ”
