Erel,
I will double check and start a fresh and see what happens. Thanks for the prompt reply and I will let you know later today.
Thanks
Erel,
The socket number was wrong. I have changed that and know I get further, but I still dont get a successful compile. The error message I get now is

Building Xcode project 0.01
Sending data to remote compiler. Error

I can now compile on the local mac. However I deleted by bridge app from my Ipad and then went to build a new one using the local MAC build. The app builds and I get the message to go and download the app using the WEB page. However when I click on the button nothings happens, so I cant rebuild and install the bridge app. How can I get past this hurdle?

No. In the IDE I get the message to download the app after the build is successful. . I go to that address and I see the big button, I click on the button and nothing happens.

Hi Erel,
I've just bought a new iPhone6, I modified my iOs Provisioning stuff and... everything goes right : My apps run well and are built locally on my Mac, on my iPhone4s, iPhone5s, iPad air and the new iPhone6

Perfect, just need the tableview (I'm teasing you)

iOS compilation requires an Apple Mac computer. Developers have two options with B4i:
- Use a local Mac machine connected over the local network.
- Use our hosted builder rental service.

These instructions explain how to install the builder on a local Mac machine.

1. Install Java JDK (7 or 8): http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html
2. Install Xcode 6.
3. Download and unzip the B4i-Builder.
4. Open a terminal and navigate to B4i-Builder folder.
5. Run it with: java -jar B4iBuildServer.jar
6. Set the builder IP address in the IDE under Tools - Build Server - Server Settings

Notes & Tips

- By default ports numbers 51041 (http) and 51042 (https) are used.
- The firewall should be either disabled or allow incoming connections on these two ports.
- You can test that the server is running by going to the following link: http://<server ip>:51041/test
- You can kill the server with: http://<server ip>:51041/kill
- It is recommended to set your Mac server ip address to a static address. This can be done in your router settings or in the Mac under Network settings.
- A single Mac builder can serve multiple developers as long as they are all connected to the same local network. Note that you are not allowed to host builders for developers outside of your organization.

Multiple IPs

When the server is started it takes the first IP address reported by the OS and uses it as its own IP address. You can see this address in the server messages.
In most cases this is the correct address. However if it is not the correct IP address then the server will not be usable.
In that case you need to explicitly set the correct address:
- Open the key folder and delete all files.
- Edit key.txt and change it to:
B4X:
manual:<correct ip address>
For example:
manual:192.168.0.199
Hi Erel,

It's clear that we need a Mac to compile, OK, but What is not clear for me is in what platform works the B4i IDE: windows o Mac ?

Good job. There is a price (99$) for the launch of the product : 'till when?
What would be the "regular" price after ?

Thanx

hi Erel,

can I use a public ip to connect to my MAC? also, instead of the IP can I use a domain name?

reason is I have my mac at home (but is up 24/7) but the only way so far to access it is to use a DDNS address. In that case, which port would I need to open up in the firewall?

Not exactly. You can use our Mac builder service.

The IDE runs on Windows.

Yes. You need to manually set the ip address (or host) as described in the multiple ips section: http://www.basic4ppc.com/android/forum/threads/local-mac-builder-installation.46402/

You need to open ports 51042 and 51041.

Note that you can use the remote builder service when you are not near the computer.

OK. My question was because I work on Mac usually ;-).
Someone told me that in the future it will be available a OS X version of the IDE for B4i : any date planned ?
Thanx Erel
