    I got this working by adding inbound rules for Spacedesk to Malwarebytes Firewall Control. For some reason it had only added outbound rules.

    I tried doing this with the regular Windows Firewall, but for some reason, rules being added to regular Windows Firewall did not stay in the system, and were gone next time I checked, even if I wasn’t running the third party program. But adding the inbound rules in Malwarebytes worked.

    Now I’m trying to increase performance of Spacedesk. USB tethering worked, but Mobile Hotspot doesn’t appear to work. The Hotspot IP shows up in Spacedesk console, and shows up if I do ipconfig in command prompt, but it cannot be detected from the Android tablet. (secondary device) It still won’t detect even after selecting “no filtering” on Malwarebytes Firewall, which appears to disable the Windows Firewall as well.

    Any ideas of how I might go about getting Hotspot working?

    Seems to be firewall related actually. I thought exiting out of my third party firewall program (Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control) would cause it to stop running but I think it still might be running – as if I change the profile to No Filtering instead of exiting out of it, then the viewer app is able to detect the laptop.

    So I’m not sure if this is something I need to change in the built-in Windows Firewall, or the Malwarebytes one, but I’ll do some tinkering around. Thanks. And sorry for not realizing my mistake sooner.

    It’s possible Malwarebytes Firewall stops running after I quit out of it and the remaining Windows Firewall is too restrictive. (which selecting No-Filtering in Malwarebytes might disable) Likewise it’s possible Malwarebytes may still be running in the background.

    Just tried that. Didn’t help unfortunately.

    Just pinged back and forth successfully. From the laptop to computer 100% on all pings. From computer to laptop there was a single timeout on the 4th ping in the first group of 4. Then every ping thereafter was 100% successful.

    Tried with antivirus disabled. Still not working.

    Private network. Although it says that on the desktop too. (which as mentioned, is working)

    Seems there’s a new version of Spacedesk now so I upgraded to that, but it didn’t fix anything. I noticed that I couldn’t click on the alert at the top of the Spacedesk console informing me of the new version, as it gives me the error “Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessable”. So I had to manually go to the download page myself to download the new version.

    The operating system I’m using for the primary machine (a laptop PC – specifically a Razor Blade 15 Base 2021 GTX3070 1080p144hz) is Windows 11 Home 64-bit version 21H2 build 22000.434 with Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.434.0. Secondary machine is a Samsung A7 tablet running the latest Android OS version 11. The viewer app I’m using is the Spacedesk Viewer Android app available in the Google Play store.

    I have also tried using an Android smartphone (Samsung S8+) as the secondary machine. Is also updated to the latest Android version. (version 9) The phone also doesn’t seem to detect the laptop primary machine.

    I also tried using my Desktop PC as the primary machine. Same OS + version + build as the laptop PC. The Desktop PC actually worked, with both the phone and the tablet as the secondary machine. So presumably the problem is isolated to the laptop and it’s ability to act as a primary machine – as the tablet/phone can detect the Desktop, but not the Laptop.

    Anyway, attached to this reply is the diagnostic log.
