Expo not working on home network

Need some help.

At my workplace, Expo has worked for displaying my create-react-native-app. But at home, I either get the “web socket timed out” error (I’ve already tried setting the REACT_NATIVE_PACKAGER_HOSTNAME), or using a USB cable and XDE, I get a “No Route to Host” exception.

Have spent the whole day on this…

Hi, your local network may not support accessing other machines over LAN. If possible, you might just experiment with changing your router configuration to support this. If you can’t get it to work, another option is to switch over to using exp (requires an Expo account), which supports a Tunnel option for this use case.

My app now loads using the Tunnel with XDE, but my actions aren’t hitting my backend server.
