    “2) Navigate to the extracted content’s directory on your local web server (ie. http://192.168.2.1/wiiu/) in the Wii U’s Internet Browser.

    3) Navigate to the pc.html page in your browser on the PC (ie. http://localhost/wiiu/pc.html).”

    “wiiu” inside these Server Addresses is referencing the Folder Name within which the Program is Stored. For example, When I first extracted the file, it was named “GamepadtoPC” so the Address I had to use was http://192.168.x.x/GamepadtoPC/

    If you are experiencing an Issue where the server is connected on both PC and Wii U Browser, but Keybindings do not function, it is likely you do not have Java installed, or it is out of Date.
