cannot chat/see with people outside a network domain.

Thanks for the excellent tool, first off.

If a user is not in the main and start squiggle, the this user is not visible to others who are in the domain. is this by design ?
Note: this particular user is on windows 10 if that matters.

You will have to install bridge for Squiggle to work across networks

Hi Hasan, thanks for the quick reply.
OK will try the bridge and update you.
But just to fill in some more details.
1 - there was a typo in my first message - when I meant to write "user is not in the domain" - but keyed it "user is not in the main".
2 - The two machines are on the same network. here is the scenario
I have a desktop that is logged-in to domain "office" 
I bring my laptop to work and connect to the network (via wifi), but __do not__ use my domain login from there.
so now Squiggle on the laptop sees no users that are seen on the desktop (that is in domain)
Would this also need a bridge - also the laptop IP changes due to DHCP's non-static assignment.

Thanks again,

Try using multicast service instead then.

Thanks, that worked, but to implement I would need all client to change the presence ip and port. I will leave it for now as I am the only user that needs it outside the domain but in the network. But I am still curious, should this have been a problem at all in the first place. i.e. being in the same network/same subnet, but just not logged in the network domain cause a problem.
I will update the discussion if I find out anything new.
