Opennms Mobile Console

This works! I'm managing a Linux home network of just 10 nodes and this app is well worth the price. Installation was ridiculously easy after I got my server running on Fedora 23.

Timeouts too short

The app timeout values are too short.

When connecting to a slower Horizon server it fails rather than waiting.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. 3.2.1, coming out in the next few days, adds timeout to the server config.
