Opera Mini IP address handling

  • Hi,
    I've successfully installed Opera Mini on both my Android device and Wearable (Samsung Gear S).
    Surfing works fine, however it seems I cannot access local hosted web pages by entering the IP address and port number.
    (example: http://1.2.3.4:1234)

    Opera for Android can reach the service and successfully loads the HTML page (AJAX client) but not the Mini version.
    Any ideas why it won't load or what I can do?

    Thanks 🙂

  • It's because Opera Mini servers can't access your local machines.

  • You have to be able to access your inside site from the external Internet. Mini simply can't access a site entirely inside a firewall - you have to be available outside from one of Opera's servers.

    Can you rearrange things and set up a port forwarding on your firewall, and use a dynamic dns setup?

  • Ahhhhh, I see 😄
    Thank you for the quick answer, very appreciated!!!!
