I just started using jAlbum for a while, thanks for the excellent work!
I host my album with IIS inside my home network (192.168.x.y), and added the album as an external one using the machine's hostname. From my jAlbum homepage I can then click on the album and see it, obviously only if I'm accessing within my home lan.
My question is if I'm using the iPad app to access my album I'm getting the "Album is not compatible with this software version" error, even though the iPad is also connected to my home network.
Is it even possible? I tried to add an external album with IP (192.168.x.y) instead of hostname, but it reported an illegal URL error.
The iPad app is using an api on our servers that in turn access the album.rss-file in the published albums to see which images to show. So the album needs to be accessible from our servers, which means that an album that is only accessible on your lan (192.168.x.x) can't be shown in the iPad app.
If the iPad app itself would get the url to the album from our server, and then would access its' album.rss-file, it might have worked, but that's not the way it (currently) works, unfortunately.
The error message can be very confusing. It really would say "Album can't be shown since the album.rss-file in the album can't be found or accessed by the jalbum.net server."

Changed a can to can't.
