iOS Question SendFailure with Local Mac Builder


Licensed User

I have a « sendFailure » message while compiling my app and I can’t find a solution.

I have been using B4i for several months and everything was working so far but I had to change my windows VM and install the new B4i version 5.3.

I also received and installed an automatic upgrade for Xcode 10.0.

Here is my configuration :
  • Mac OSX 10.13.6 with ip (DHCP with manual ip)
  • Xcode Version 9.4 (9F1027a) (I reverted back to 9.4)
  • Parallels running Windows 8.0 in « Shared Network » mode
  • B4i BuildServer 5.3 with manual ip set to manual: (I also removed the Key folder)
  • iPad with iOS 10.3.3 et B4x pem.cer installed and trusted
  • All firewalls OFF

So far, I am able to open from the mac and the windows vm and from iPad both displaying the build server and the « /test » info

The only error I can see is related to port 51042 and a missing SSL key. B4I Build Server info is set to and 51041 and 64bit

I am ready to subscribe to the hosted builder if necessary but would really like to solve this.
Any idea would be welcome


Here is the Mac Terminal output

Finally, I managed to connect from the mac, windows vm and iPad using only the local mac address ( in the BuildServer key.txt file, B4i Builder settings (with port 51042).

Everything is working now.

Many thanks for this great dev IDE and tools
