Timeout when connecting to an Ipad

Post by Sanjay » Tue Nov 04, 2014 11:29 am

Hi there,

I'm trialling Ranorex and have come across a connection time-out issue when trying to connect an Ipad.

1. I have the rxbrowser installed on the Ipad (downloaded from your site).
2. The device can be seen in Ranorex and I can connect to it when clicking Start.
3. The rxbrowser launches twice on the ipad and then I get a time-out error.

I have increased the time-out setting in Global Settings to 30 seconds. Please find some screenshots attached.

Many Thanks,

Hi Sanjay,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to start the application on your device with Ranorex Studio.
Starting and stopping of iOS apps requires a debug build with a debug profile, but the install-able IPA packages are created with a distribution profile. For this reason starting and stopping apps via USB will not work with the directly install-able IPA packages.
