Mark, thanks for getting back to me. In answer to your questions...
Is your iPhone on the same wireless network as your iPad? - Yes it is.
From the native browser on your iPhone can you try browsing to http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/ and tell me what you see? -
Hope this helps.
It's helpful, but not tremendously so We're a little stumped right now. Our best guess is that the 3G is slow enough that it's surpassing the weinre timeout. Can you try the same test with the simplest page imagineable: http://www.brainjar.com/java/host/test.html ?
Sorry, we weren't very clear on the last test. Can you browse to that simple page in Edge Inspect and try to click the remote inspection button for the 3G and see if it still does not work for that page?
LOL I did wonder if that's what you meant
I tried the above URL in Inspect and exactly the same thing happened as before...
- The page was there in the Inspect window on my iPhone (as per screenshot above)
- In the inspector window under devices it said 'none'.
- The title of the inspector window read 'weinre: target not connected'
I'm also encountering the same issue as Adrian. I did what Matt proposed and also got the same result (Devices: None). I'm running Mac OSX Lion with the latest chrome, remote inspecting to a iPhone 4S with iOS5
We're not sure what's going on. Our weinre server works for most people but doesn't seem to work for you. The best suggestion I can come up with at this point is that you should try running your own weinre server from your machine. The setup isn't too difficult, we have instructions here: http://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-2623 and can help if you run into issues.
Can you turn off any firewall software on your machine to see if that makes a difference?

Thanks for the suggestions. I have resolved the problem partially, but here are some inputs/feedback that may help your team.
>> Can you turn off any firewall software on your machine to see if that makes a difference?
I don't have any firewall installed on my mac (nor I think there was any turned on by default).
>> From the native browser on your iPhone can you try browsing to http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/ and tell me what you see?
Yes I can see the adobe edge inspect logo. However, when i tried to used Edge Inspect and point to the URL, the web page does not load on the Edge Inspector iPhone App
I have successfully use Edge Inspect using own Home/personal Network.
I encountered the issues when I was using Edge Inspect on my Office Network. I'm able to show all other pages on my Edge Inspector Mobile App but not inspect the codes as highlighted by Adrian above. I'm still figuring out if it is a time-out issue from adobe's server due or some network firewall issue or a internet bandwidth issue. And yes, another solution would be to install our own weinre server.
Same Problem here: (solved!)
Win7:192.168.1.183 (wlan), no firewall
Development + Webserver (xampp) + edge Inspect ,
coolnovo chromium browser with edge inspect add-on.
(has a Connectify hotspot tool, which is disabled for this.)
LG Android: 192.168.1.160 Edge Inspect app
shows website from 192.168.1.183
Edge Inpsect connection can be established and shows the sites syncronised with the desktop browser.
http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/ can be accessed with both devices (logo and brown striped background).
Trying to inspect the device results in a new window: weinre: target not connected. / no devices
Restarted everything several times, reconnected mobile to wlan again, ....
Oops. Now it works! Probably this 'solution' helps anyone: Reconnect your devices to the wlan again and probably wait a little.
I have lost count of the number of times I have reconected, restarted and sworn at my iPhone.
Still doesn't work here - unsolved!
I think it is a timeout issue because the iPhone 3g (and older models) do not have the power to run this app effieciently.
I have given up trying until somebody comes up with a good solution.
because edge inspect does not show the site as the default android browser, chrome, opera and mozilla do, I often switch between these apps.
edge inspect seems to hold the wlan connection when it´s in the foreground, but with the normal browsers, the phone switches to standby. after that the edge connection is lost and sometimes really hard to reconnect.
adriandhart, sorry to hear this still isn't working for you. The only other possible suggestion I have for you is to set up weinre locally and try making use of that local server. Though that's still no guaranteed to solve your issue since we don't know the exact cause of it.
Instructions for setting up a local weinre instance are here: http://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-2623
Hope this helps,
Ok so I am also having the same problem and I tried setting up the Weinre locally and that did not work. Tried it on a local router that has very little restrictions did not work.
Tried having my computer connected to the internet via ethernet meanwhile sharing the internet through wifi directly to my iphone, still no target.
Tried VPNing to California just in case, still did not work.
We need a solution to this otherwise its just going to fill us with frustrations....
Hi Jules, sorry to hear you're having an issue too. The problem with trying to figure this out is that the problem is almost certainly some configuration on your machine or network and that's extremely difficult to solve remotely.
Here are some suggestions for other things to try, let me know what happens for each as it may give me some clue what's wrong. If you see something you think is wrong, please be as descriptive and complete as possible... screenshots can definitely be helpful.
- In Chrome, go to http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/ and tell me what you see there
- Does it make a difference if you test a different page? Give http://google.com a try and see if you get a different-looking weinre window.
- Are you testing content from localhost? If so, try taking Edge Inspect out of the loop and see if that changes anything...
- Put this script tag into your web page: <script src="http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/target/target-script-min.js#moretti"></script>
- Reload the page in Chrome.
- In a new browser tab/window go to http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/client/#moretti
- Does that get you a working weinre window?
- If so, load the page in the native browser on your device (you'll need to use your computer's IP address instead of localhost) and on your computer refresh the /client#moretti window
- Does that work? (NOTE: you can use any identifier after the hash as long as it's the same in both your script tag and the URL you input)
Oh, also... what version of Chrome are you running? There's a known issue with weinre and Chrome 28.
I'm getting the same problem. Edge Inspect follows along with the pages I visit, but when I attempt remote debug I get the "weinre: target not connected" message at the top of the debug tools window. I'm running Chrome 28, so I suspect the issue is related to the weinre Chrome 28 bug. Here's a screenshot of how the weinre console is erroring:
Please fix your weinre server ASAP for Chrome 28 guys! Everyone is auto-updating onto Chrome 28 so Edge Inspect is basically globally broken right now.
same problem here,
when i try remote debug apears weinre window with "target not connected" title
i have windows7 64 + ipod touch4 with iOs 6.1.3 (latest).
i turned off firewall software but get same.
also, hope it will hepls
i go 2 http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/ and
from pc: all fine i get page with lines and logo
and from device: only brown background and little title at bottom "powered by weinre learn more about edge inspect"
oh and my chrome version 26.0.1410.64 m
hope for ur help.
@lukyanov It doesn't sound like you're problem is exactly the same. With the Chrome 28 weinre bug Edge Inspect still connects and works on the device (able to following along with browsing on the desktop) its just the remote dev tools weinre connection that doesn't work. Sounds like your issue is more fundamental if Edge Inspect isn't connecting at all on your device.
oh i meant post in thread)
i can connect with inspect to my device
but only function that i have its watching them synchronized
hope this will helps)
FYI, we are working on updating our version of weinre now. We hope to have a version that works with Chrome 28 posted in the next couple of hours.
lukyanov, I'll try to help you out after we get weinre updated.
i rly want this stuff)
For everyone using Chrome 27 or above - we've integrated the weinre fixes and pushed those changes live to our server. Let us know if you see any problems.

That's fixed it for me on Chrome 28. Thanks so much for the swift response, great work!
Ok, now that we've got the major problem taken care of I'll try to help you out.
So, it sounds like your desktop and your device can both reach our weinre server... that's good. And since you can sync browse you've got your device connected correctly too. Can you take a screenshot of the weinre window and post it here?
Thanks. I'm not sure what's going on there.
A couple more questions:
- Can you try browsing in Chrome to a public site like http://www.google.com and see if your device can remote inspect that page?
- If not, check for any firewall software, and try turning that off temporarily. Does that makes any difference with a public site?
- If you're testing a local page that you can edit, try taking Edge Inspect out of the loop and see if that changes anything...
- Put this script tag into your web page: <script src="http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/target/target-script-min.js#lukyanov"></script>
- Reload the page in Chrome.
- In a new browser tab/window go to http://debug.edgeinspect.adobe.com/client/#lukyanov
- Does that get you a working weinre window?
If none of that works for you, I have one more possible workaround for you, but try those things first and tell me what happened with each.
oh i did it all before i posted here)
will tell u more now
1)its didnt worked for me, also i tryed wisit "simple html page" that u wrote here. still same
2)i even tryed delete it and open ports 8080 and 7682 in my router settings. no result
3)did it and even put this script in one site which i was developt in past and nothing change
also i run weinre+node js+putting custom weinre server in inspect options and this didnt work
so i'm in despair)
what is ur last plan?
p.s. ill try tomorrow test inspect with my device on my co-worker macbook in office network mb it will clear wheres problem
My last suggestion was running your own weinre server, which you say you've done. We know of no reason why this shouldn't work... there must be some machine or network configuration that's preventing the communication.
So, I want to be clear, you did step #3 above and it still didn't work for you? Can you describe EXACTLY what you did and EXACTLY what happened? There is absolutely no reason that should fail. Our weinre server is running on HTTP on port 80 and you can reach the server from both your computer and your phone. That basically should not fail unless you've got some very strange configuration. Please describe in detail what you did and provide screenshots of what you're seeing.
Also, try doing the local weinre server test again, but use your machine IP address instead of "localhost" in the custom weinre server setting in the Chrome extension.
Definitely try remote inspection out on other machines and other networks if you can.
Do you have a home network you can try?
Are you absolutely sure your computer and phone are on the same network when you're doing these tests?
I'm unable to run Edge Inspect from iPhone 3gs as well.
I've installed the Desktop app, the Chrome extension and the iPhone app. When I run the iPhone app, it shows my computer on the list but when I click on it, it remains loading forever and nothing happens. I've tried to Manually set the IP address as well but without success.
From my case scenario and the replies on this thread I would say that Adobe Edge Inspect doesn't work on the iPhone 3gs.
This thread is about people having problems with their connected devices being unable to connect to weinre for remote inspection. It sounds like you're having problems with getting a basic connection going... something entirely different. We don't know of any issues with getting a 3gs connected to your computer with Edge Inspect. That said, connection problems can generally be solved by following these steps:
- Make sure your computer and your devices are connected to the same network.
- Make sure your computer is not on VPN since that will block other external connections.
- Temporarily turn off any firewall software on your computer. (Once you get connected you can re-enable the firewall and then add an exception for Edge Inspect)
- Make sure that port 7682 is not being used by anything on your computer and that your network doesn't block communications across that port. Generally this isn't a problem on a home network, but can be a problem in corporate network environments. If you're on a corporate network, also make sure that your computer and your device are on the same subnetwork or that communication on port 7682 is allowed across subnets... talk to your IT department about that.
- Enter the IP address of your computer in the manual connection screen. Enter only the IP address without any protocol. Click the connect button and let me know if you see any error messages in that screen.
Try that and let me know if you're able to get a connection.
Yeah, I've just replied on this post because is the only one mentioning issues with iPhone 3gs and I didn't wanted to create a new one... You think that creating a new thread for my case would be better?
Anyway, I did every step you've mentioned:
1. They are.
2. It's not a VPN.
3. We don't have any firewalls here.
4. Ports being used: 80 (http), 88 (kerberos), 548 (afpovertcp), 7682, 8000 (irdmi). This was shown while the Desktop app and the iPhone app were open at the same time. If I turn off the iPhone app, port 7682 doesn't show up on the list.
5. Already did that. It remains "Conecting..." forever.
Thanks for your help! This is very frustrating.
No, let's leave it in this thread.
I understand your frustration. We should be able to get this connecting, though it may take a few more rounds here, so please be patient
#3. It's very likely that whatever computer you're using has some firewall software running by default. What type of computer do you have and what OS version is it running?
#4. Are you on a home network or a work network?
#5. Do you see any other messages in the manual connection screen on your iPhone?
I'll be patient
So, let's go:
.3 I'm running OSX 10.8.4 on a Mac Mini.
.4 I'm at work, but we're a very small studio so we don't have any fancy firewall or network settings going on.
.5 I don't see any message, it just remains connecting forever and nothing happens. Same thing for automatic and manual configuration.
Here are the screen shots:
#3. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Firewall and make sure the firewall is off on your Mac.
Do you have a home network or alternate network (e.g. coffee shop) you could try this on to see if you get different results there? I know that's not a final solution, but it can help narrow down where the problem is.
Just tried it from home and – sadly – same thing is happening. This time I checked the firewalls and they were turned off already as you said.
I have no idea what the issue is I appreciate your effort though
FYI I've just tested with an iPhone 4gs and it worked fine. The problem really seems to be exclusively of the iPhone 3gs.
We're in the process of trying to get hold of an iPhone 3gs to try this for ourselves. We'll update you when we have more information. Thanks for your patience
