i cant connect from my Android phones to my server.
I designed only a ui so far, there is no remotecontrol device configureated.
Openremote is installed on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

What i tried so far:

upload design via online and zipfile

There you are the controller.xml, panel.xml and image files which you use in your design.

Check connection to server:

notebook ->works
android ->works
notebook -> <openremote><panel id="11" name="Android"/></openremote>
android -> white page (maybe depends on the installed Internetviewer)

<openremote><screens><screen id="13" name="Starting Screen"><grid left="10" top="10" width="300" height="460" rows="5" cols="1"><cell x="0" y="0" rowspan="1" colspan="1"><button id="18" name="Button" hasControlCommand="true"><default><image src="power.png"/></default></button></cell><cell x="0" y="1" rowspan="1" colspan="1"><button id="20" name="Button"><default><image src="magnify+.png"/></default></button></cell><cell x="0" y="2" rowspan="1" colspan="1"><button id="22" name="Button"><default><image src="magnify-.png"/></default></button></cell></grid></screen></screens><groups><group id="12" name="Default Group"><include type="screen" ref="13"/></group></groups></openremote>

One pitfall can be that some WiFi routers per default configure something they refer to as 'wireless isolation'. I had this with Netgear. Wireless isolation means that Wireless devices is allowed to access Internet but nothing on the local network.
