I am attempting to get CR to work for the first time. I am hoping to be use it extensively for a project I want to do next year and I am road testing, including the cloud option, and subscribing.
I have the add-on (0.28) installed on the master (Linux Ubuntu) and slave (Windows 10). The windows machine is on the same network, with the linux machine is connected to a hub on that network. I am using Blender 2.91 on both machines.
The Windows machine is visible on my Linux machine - I can connect it's drives and interact with it, send files etc. When I connect in CR, it says "connecting to nodes" and then nothing. There is no indication that the connection has failed or that the machine is connected.
I have tried several times including restarting the master machine. I checked port forwarding - there is no indication that those ports (>9000 range) are blocked, and I have ports being used in the high 9000s. I am not getting any error messages that indicate what the problem might be. Note attached image:
If I connect, I connect to the correct IP address, and I also tried the smb address, but I don't get any indication that the connection has failed or succeeded. Trying to render to prompt something does not work either.
I'm stumped. Is there anything I might have missed?
Correct, not yet, we're testing a new build to support it as of right now. We're hoping to put it into early access this week.
Update 2: It seems like from other research that 2.91 is not supported. Is that right?
Update: Even connecting to my Mac which is on the same network hub yeilds the same result. No indication of whether the connection has failed and no real connection. It ought to connect - the two computers are connected over LAN. Also to clarify - I am using a wired connection.
