MAC:

  1. In the macOS System Preferences > Sharing, enable File Sharing.
  2. Go to Documents 6 settings > Network > Add account > Windows SMB server.
  3. Use your Mac's IP address or local host name into URL field.
  4. Provide your Mac login and password (credentials used for installing apps and logging into your Mac account).
  5. Tap Save to create a connection.
  6. The connection will work in your local Wi-Fi area, provided your Mac is turned on.


Please note: if you change the network frequently but sync the folder between your Mac and iOS device, please use mac's Hostname in URL field instead of the IP address since IP address changes while changing the network.

Examples of valid URL: 

smb://local-server-name

smb://local-server-name/share-name

smb://local-server-name/share-name/folder-path

smb://192.168.1.1
