Publishing for an iPhone

The Merlin iPhone sharing module add on allows you to publish your Merlin project file over the air allowing users to collaborate with you using an iPhone or iPod touch. Changes made via Merlin in the iPhone are instantly shared amongst the users.

The add on is already installed as part of your Merlin 2.7 application but requires that you purchase a license to activate it. To learn more, click here. The Merlin application can be obtained free of charge from the iTunes AppStore.

How to share a Merlin project file for the iPhone

To publish your project you need to make sure that you are using Merlin 2.7 or higher.

  1. Open the desired file in Merlin
  2. Click on the "Publish" tool bar button (yellow horn)
  3. Select "iPhone"
  4. Press "Start"
  5. Click on the URL displayed to open the shared project in your default browser or drag it and drop it to your iChat, or e-mail to send it.

  6. To stop the iPhone sharing, press the "Stop" button

Merlin makes every attempt to open a port on your firewall so internet users can access your published Merlin project file over the web. If it doesn't work for you, please consult your router's settings to ensure that uPNP is enabled. For more information on uPNP, please click here.
Please consult your router manufacturer for instructions on how to enable uPNP
