My computers are seeing themselves with the service but won't see other computers

+1 vote

I have installed the Back-End Server on two separate computers. When I open the web Front-End Controller on each computer they see themselves but won't see each other. Any help on this would be appreciated.

This is usually a result of network related processes.

Couple of things to try:

If you're on Windows:
1. Make sure that the AcaciaService.exe is added to the Windows firewall as an exception for both incoming and outgoing connections.
2. Make sure that the "Bonjour Service" is running according to 'services.msc'.
3. Restart the "Bonjour Service" via 'services.msc'.
If all else fails, restart your computer.

Thank you for the reply, that worked perfectly. It turns out the main pc didn't have Bonjour running.
