I have an app that send commands to an ESP8266 and the same program ( target targetSdkVersion 27 ) works in android 4.12 and 7.11 but fails to send in android 8

The ESP8266 is configurated as a server, I can connect to it and get an address 192.168.4.2 ( the server is at 192.168.4.1 )

When I tryed to connect I get this error

Erro Conexão socket Token 192.168.4.2 - (SocketTimeoutException) java.net.SocketTimeoutException: failed to connect to /192.168.4.1 (port 80) from /179.165.88.27 (port 47238) after 5000ms

What is strange is that the address "From/179.165.88.27" is an internet address and not I internal net address.

Just happen with android 8, the old version works in android 8



B4X:
        sock.Initialize("sock")
        sock.Connect("192.168.4.1", 80, 5000)
'        sock.Connect(EdtSend.Text, 80, 10000)
        Wait For sock_Connected (Successful As Boolean)
        If Successful Then
            astream.InitializePrefix(sock.InputStream, False, sock.OutputStream, "astream")
'            astream.Write(ser.ConvertArrayToBytes(RecordToObjects(rec)))
'            astream.Write(ser.ConvertArrayToBytes( Array ("teste de envio") ))
            Buffer_Rec = ""
            astream.Write(  bc.StringToBytes ( pMensagem, "UTF8" )  )' ( "xxGET /set/clear/998557019/9012", "UTF8") )
            xFlag = True
            Do While xFlag
                Wait For astream_NewData (Buffer() As Byte)
                xResp = bc.StringFromBytes ( Buffer, "UTF8")
                If xResp = "EOL" Then
                    xFlag = False
                    Log ( "Recebidos: " &  Buffer_Rec )
                Else
                    Buffer_Rec = Buffer_Rec & xResp
                End If
            Loop
            Set_Sv_Mensagens ( Buffer_Rec , Altura_Mensagem)
        Else
            Log  ( "Erro Conexão socket Token " & wifi.WifiIpAddress & " - " & LastException )
            Set_Sv_Mensagens ( trans.translate( "Problemas conexão SOS Token " ) , 30dip)
        End If


The manifest is
B4X:
'This code will be applied to the manifest file during compilation.

Fyi - when I ping 179.165.88.27, it comes back as:

Pinging 179-165-88-27.user.vivozap.com.br [179.165.88.27] with 32 bytes of data:

Which indicates that it's a cellular data user on the Vivo network in Brazil.

There is a small project that communicate with ESP8266 .

With manifest android:targetSdkVersion ="19" works

With manifest android:targetSdkVersion="22" timeout error
(SocketTimeoutException) java.net.SocketTimeoutException: failed to connect to /192.168.4.1 (port 80) from /179.165.88.27 (port 37703) after 5000ms

As my wifi connection ( ESP8266) isn´t connected to internet when I try to connect to my sever ( ESP8266 192.168.4.1 ) in the same local network in TargetSdk = 19 connect OK, on targetSDk > 22 goes to GPRS trought Vivo-Brazil .

How can I connect to a server in the same network ?

It´s a real device Moto G6plus

I disable the mobile data from the cellphone and it works.

I don´t know why even if this is a internal address ( 192.....) the android goes to outside.

I´ll try to disable by code the mobile data and then when finished enable again

Thanks Colin

Sounds like the Moto G6 Plus might have an auto-switching function like the Samsung devices.

I didn´t find this configuration.

It seems that is not allowed to disable mobie data by code, I´ll have to ask for the user to do it.

Android should verify first if the address is a LAN or internet address
