QHostInfo::lookupHost() and QDnsLookup::lookup() not Supported on Android

  • I have a mobile app that connects to a device via Wi-Fi. I look up the device's IP address using QHostInfo, using the device's dns name 'mydevicename.local'.

    I get the resolved IP address on iOS, but not Android. On Android I get a "Host not found" error msg.

    I have also tried using QDnsLookup, where on Android I get "Not yet supported on Android" error message.

    So what to do? Are there alternatives available in Qt? Can I JNI into native Android Java to use services available there? Anyone have any examples?

    Much thanks for any pointers!
