First install MediaMonkey version 4 or higher and RemoteMonkeyServer on your Windows PC and start both. RemoteMonkeyServer adds an icon to the system tray. Click on that icon to open the settings and information dialog.
The windows firewall will possibly pop up a confirmation dialog. Please confirm to allow server functionality of RemoteMonkeyServer.
There is only a single option in the settings dialog: the network port number that is used to communicate between RemoteMonkey and RemoteMonkeyServer. Change the default value (15782) only if it is already in use on your PC. The download and sync function also uses the next higher port (15783) to download files.
It is important to enter the same port number in RemoteMonkey and RemoteMonkeyServer. Click Apply to use the new value.
RemoteMonkeyServer keeps running when you close the dialog. The button Exit terminates the server.
RemoteMonkey is available on Google Play. There is a demo version at no charge with limited functionality. Please install the demo version before buying the full version to test comptatibility with your device.
