AirDrop no longer working in latest Eddie 2.15.2 release

Recommended Posts

Hi, up until recently, Apple's AirDrop file transfer protocol would work even when network lock was turned on in Eddie. In v2.15.2 this no longer works. Does anybody know a specific setting that may have changed to enable this feature again?

I don't know which version you upgraded from but Eddie 2.15.2 for example did something with NetLock. Not entirely sure how to interpret this bugfix, either it's a fix of firewall support or firewall is the only solution for now.. you should check whether local addresses are still being ignored from routing in Preferences > Network Lock > something something local network.

So I think I figured out how to bring back AirDrop in this Eddie release even with Network Lock on.


In Preferences > Network Lock > Incoming, I changed this setting to Allow and it seems to make AirDrop work again.

Can somebody confirm if this is still a safe setting to change?
