Has anyone tried running a ktor server on android with v2.0? I'm seeing that ktor isn't able to server any incoming requests on my side.
tracking this bug here, if anyone's interested in following: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/KTOR-3653

Ktor Server isn't designed to work on Android. Also Android isn't a platform designed for running serverside software (aka not a Linux Server distro; just a Mobile platform).

I'm sorry, but where is this coming from? there's nothing stopping you from running a server on mobile.

True, however mobile devices (the hardware and OS) aren't designed to run 24x7 like servers.
