App and server don't auto-reconnect after waking up PC
Ibrahim Jadoon 11
Hi. I'm using UR 3.5.5 on my OnePlus One (Android 5.1.1; Cyanogen OS 12.1) with UR 220.127.116.113 (40) on my Windows 8.1 Pro x64 desktop PC.
I turn my computer to sleep and wake it up using Tasker (with the Unified Remote plugin & WOL). However, when it wakes up, the UR server doesn't automatically reconnect with my phone. See this screenshot here.
Because it doesn't reconnect, I can't send any more commands. What I've tried already:
- Restart both app and server program. No dice.
- Restart phone and PC. No dice.
- Reinstall both phone app and server program. No dice.
- Reserve DHCP for both phone and PC. No dice.
- Enable "Keep Alive" in the UR phone app settings. No dice.
- Reinstall UR server program with "Windows Service (Experimental)" checked. No dice.
- Ask UR (via Tasker) to change server to my server. No dice.
The only way to get it to reconnect is to open the UR app and tap on my server. Then, it is connected. Is there a way to reconnect using Tasker?

I've tried almost every action I can think of. The only way to re-connect is by entering the UR app and 1) tapping the server in the Server list or 2) Status -> Force Connection.
There's no other workaround I've found. Oddly, this whole time, the app thinks it is connected!
But, still no actions are passed through and the server still thinks it is disconnected. :( Anybody have any ideas?

Anybody? Is this not a feature? :( Might as well ask for a refund.
Came here to see about this issue and lo and behold I found your post with my exact problem.
It really is a strange thing. If only they added in the option to force reconnect in the Tasker plugin, or as an action.
I'm essentially trying to do what you're doing, except I'm using Tasker/autoremote/eventghost.
The app won't reconnect unless, as you've said, you manually tap the server again or force connect.
