[Interest] QWebSocketServer on iOS

Hello Alex,

There's no reason why listening to a port on iOS shouldn't work, though on mobile devices you may be subject to your application
being put to sleep when it goes into the background.

Hi all,

I have an application running a QWebSocketServer::NonSecureMode on localhost and I am using a web browser to connect. This works fine on OSX, Linux and Windows so far.

However, I just ported the app to iOS and here it has so far not been possible to establish a connection yet.

Before I dig deeper in terms of debugging I wonder if probably this not supported for iOS at all ?

So far I did not see any error message, however.

Thanks in advance for pointers of any kind.
