Oops, sorry for that.

Yeah, so as I wrote down, if I have let's say some modem + router at home,
how can I work against my "all-in-one" ovirt installation?
Well, if both your phone and your monster machine is connected to the same router you are
both on the same network. So if you can not see oVirt from mobile, there is some problem
with firewall on the all-in-one.
is the project page. It contains the sources, an
unsigned build you can install to play with, some documentation on how to setup movirt and
also how to setup the devel env.
Ping us all the time if you have any issues setting it up. But please make sure you are
using exactly the versions of everything as stated on wiki - any change in gradle or
android-studio can have fatal consequences :D
Connecting to your environment - well, you need to have access to the engine's REST
API from your phone. Than in the moVirt you just need to fill the API URL, name and
Connecting securely using https is a bit tricky - you need to have the CA cert imported to
your phone and connect to REST using the proper URL as stated in the cert.
For devel env you can use the HTTPS and pick the "Disable HTTPS" - it will not
check the cert and will work without proper url (e.g. with IP) and without cert imported.

Currently Android and surprisingly it works nice as-is on blackberry :) Even the devel env
with debugger etc(!!!)
Martin (Polednik) was considering to port it to iOS, not sure - Martin?
Also a friend of Sphoorti (the current OPW intern) is very insterested in porting it to
iOS as a different OPW. But this is very uncertain - not sure who could lead her and not
sure about funding etc...
Ok, good to know.
