Hello @ll,
is it only me, or does Impress Remote does not work any longer with 
newer versions of LO?

I have tested it with LO Version: Build-ID: 
62ad5818884a2fc2e5780dd45466868d41009ec0 as well as with
Version: Build ID: 
9e970303ddcccd9e33641f8f00bbc4c739a58cd7 TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-
x86 at 45-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-07-22_02:33:57 (both parallel 
installed, following the instructions from 
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel and with 
Germanophone lang- as well as helppack) on Debian Testing i686.

I used my Archos 80 Gen 9 tablet with Android 4.0.4 and my Acer 
Iconia A1-810 with Android 4.4.2 (both with Impress Remote available 
via F-Droid – https://f-droid.org – and via Play Store.) with 
Impress Remote 2.1.1 as well with the one from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Android-ARM@24-Bytemark-Hosting/ 
(which, btw., is empty today?) from yesterday, IIRC, but to no avail 
... :( Can someone confirm this?

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start your Android device
2. Install Impress Remote either via Playstore or – better – via F-
Droid, if you have not done it already ... ;)
3. Start your installed LO Impress
4. Either create a small presentation or open an existing one
5. Start Impress Remote on your Android device
6. On your desktop PC, Laptop, whatever: Go to "Slide Show – Impress 

In Impress Remote, you should see the name of your desktop PC, 
netbook, whatever or its operating system. But you do not see 
anything in LO's Impress Remote dialog ... :( With LO Version: Build-ID: 40ff705089295be5be0aae9b15123f687c05b0a (also with 
Germanophone lang- as well as helppack) it works as expected ... ;)

Whould someone be so kind to check, if it the same with iOS, please?
