Could not Connect

Hi, I installed the SQL pro MSSQL  free version for IOS from Apple store , it connects to  my SQL instances if I'm using  the same Wifi connection for my PC and the iphone, but I can not connect if I'm using my LTE data or some other Wifi. It gives the following message.

"Failed  to connect

Unknown host machine name (My Computer Name)(Msg 20013,Level 2) "

And the app does nont recognize sql server instances installed on my Virtual Machines.

Is there anything that I'm missing or does it need an upgrade or something?

Best Regards

    • Bruck Workie Hi. Sorry for the delay! You won’t be able to connect via computer name if you’re on an external connection such as LTE. You will need to find out your computer networks etnernal IP and use that. You will also have to have port forwarding set up properly. You can find your external up by using a site such as ipchicken.com. Port forwarding would depending on your router. Your best bet would be to google ‘port forwarding <your router name>’.
