If you forgot your Blue Plum Home Inventory password, and the hint you added is not enough to help you remember it, you can see the password from the Apple MacOS Keychain application.

Double-click on the "Blue Plum Home Inventory" row and select the "Show Password" check box in the form that will be displayed. Your application password will become visible.
iOS application’s service discovery depends on Apple’s Bonjour technology, and on some WiFi routers that won’t always work.
First, make sure that you have installed all the updates for both applications.
Sometimes turning iPhone’s Airplane mode on and off would make the application find synchronization server that is running within the Mac application.
Another cause of such problems on the WiFi router could be: 'you probably have multicast on WiFi disabled’. That one would require some tinkering with options in your WiFi router in order to enable that option.
