I have 4 main devices and wanted to setup bonjour between them to not rely so much on iCloud. My setup is a mac mini (server), MacBook pro, iPad and iPhone
The initial sync works fine but when I setup the iPhone / iPad to sync with my MacBook (my main machine), DEVONthink on my MacBook randomly just freezes and becomes unresponsive (beachball), the client then displays “server timeout” as sync error message. I have to force kill the app and restart for it to work again, then it works fine for a bit and randomly (can be minutes or hours) goes back into frozen state.
No problems with freezes at all when I don’t use bonjour and just iCloud.
This also happens more often when I put the MacBook to sleep (close the lid) and re-open it
What can I do to debug this?
My current bonjour setup is:
Macbook -> Mac mini
iPhone -> Mac mini + Macbook
iPad -> Mac mini + Macbook
Reason for this setup being that the mac mini is my home server, so at home I want to use that as well, but when I’m on the go with just the MacBook it should still sync locally.
