Kolibri accesse from other devices

I have Kolibri as well as Kiwix working great on a laptop I have. However, I would like to access this content remotely from my phone or another laptop. I know Kolibri has the link to access Kolibri from other devices, however, this only seems to work when I have both my laptop and other devices connected to the same internet connection. I would hotspot from my laptop without internet but the laptop won’t allow me to enable a hotspot without a wired network connection.

I would imagine I need to create a wireless AP but if anyone has thoughts or a simple way to make this work, that can be implemented on multiple machines, please let me know.

Technical details

  • Kolibri version: 0.15.1
  • Operating system: Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon
  • Browser: FireFox

Thank you,
