I tried the Cloud Functions function of VCDS-Mobile for the first time today. The HEX-NET successfully connected to VCDS Cloud and I saw the menu to perform function such as Adaptation, Coding, etc. However, when I clicked "Go Back", my browser took me to an incorrect URL page. I suspect the reason for this is that this is the URL in my address bar:


That's clearly not a valid URL. I did this on an iPhone X running iOS 13.4 if that's relevant.

On a side note, I performed some Adaptation changes and was expecting to see a debug/log CSV file in VCDS Cloud recording all of the adaptation changes I had made, just like VCDS desktop maintains a file named AdpLog.CSV. But when I sign into VCDS Cloud on my laptop's browser and click "View saved files", all I see is a folder with a name based on my HEX-NET's ID but no files inside it. Are adaptation and coding changes made through VCDS Cloud not logged anywhere? I find that feature on VCDS desktop very useful since it allows me to keep track of all of the adaptation changes I've made on a car.

The original local IP address you came from should be stored in the browser to allow this transfer back, it seems that isn't working here. I assume you did this using the app, have you tried using an actual browser like safari?

Thanks for the reply Shaun. On my iPhone X running iOS 13.4, tapping the HEX-NET in the VCDS-Mobile app actually switches me over to Safari rather than running an in-app instance of it, so I see this behavior both when starting from the app and when starting within Safari. However, I just tested this from my laptop where I'm running Firefox 84.0.1 and I did NOT see this behavior. Maybe this is caused by some privacy-oriented function of Safari?
