Specs: Windows 10 Pro, 2.20 gigahertz AMD Sempron 1920 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / NVIDIA nForce 630a [Display adapter]
I am trying to transfer pdf file from GoodReader on iPad to PC using wifi. On my windows 10 PC I go to Chrome browser and type in address http://192.168.1.36:8080/ and after clicking enter I always end up seeing following message

This site can’t be reached

192.168.1.36 took too long to respond.
Search Google for 192 168 8080
ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

I am not using Proxy server in my Chrome browser. I have iPad Air2 with iOS 9.3.2
Earlier I used to transfer files easily through GoodReader wifi transfer. I tried other apps like Air Transfer and Photosync but no luck.

I have Avira antivirus and Comodo firewall on my PC. I don’t see anything unusal here. I am stuck please help.

There's an excellent free app called Fing that you can download from the App Store to your iPad.

This app will talk to your modem / router and list all of the connected devices on your internal network.

If you look through the list you will find your iPad and it will tell you what IP address is currently being used by the iPad on your network.

It will look something like 192.168.1.XX, you can adjust the address that you used in your original post to match whatever Fing tells you that you are using.

Does the iPad have a static internal IP address?

If you have disconnected the iPad from the home network then reconnected it may have been assigned a different IP address.

I don’t know how to check static IP address of iPad. However possibility of iPad having diff static IP address is low as I am able to transfer files between iPhone and iPad on same network using GoodReader WiFi transfer. There might be something on PC side but I don’t know what it is. Please guide me finding static IP on iPad then I will see if it is the culprit here

Have you verified the IP address of the iPad? Found this on GoodReader's site:

Actual Transfer

(must be performed every time)
Step 4. Start GoodReader app on your iPhone / iPod touch / iPad.
Step 5. Open GoodReader's WiFi-transfer page, keep it open all the time while transferring, note the IP-address on this page (you'll need it in Step 6).
