1. First, make sure that your iOS device & RVC System are on the same network.
2. Some AP "Access Points" have a special security setting called network isolation or wireless isolation which prevents wireless clients from communicating with each other. If such a setting is enabled in your router, turn it off.
3. Check that Multicasting is enabled on the network (Access Point), as it is needed for discovery. If multicasting is disabled, enable it.
4. If you are unable to connect Try turning off the Wi-Fi on your iOS device for 5 seconds and then turn it back on.
5. If this does not fix the issue try powering off your iOS device, wait for 5 seconds and then turn it back on.
