WiFi File Transfer. Mac OS X.
This page describes Step 6 of WiFi File Transfer manual.
Step 6. "Professional" transfer - connecting your iPhone as a network folder
This technique connects your iPhone to your desktop computer as a network folder.
Connecting your iPhone to Mac OS X:
on Mac computer go to Finder application, open the Go menu and select Connect to Server:
enter your iPhone's IP-address taken from Step 5 of WiFi File Transfer manual (enter it exactly as you see it on GoodReader's WiFi-transfer page, with http:// and :8080 parts) and click Connect:
the network folder will open:
This is the folder with all files that are stored inside GoodReader on your iPhone/iPod. Use this folder the same way you use a normal Mac folder - drag-and-drop files there, copy, move, rename, delete, create subfolders, etc.
only when you're completely done with file transfer, press the eject button nearby your iPhone's address at the sidebar of any Finder's window:
Wait until the shared address and the eject button disappear, only then close GoodReader's WiFi-transfer page.
- please do NOT assume that the IP-address is the same as it was when you were connecting the last time - IP-addresses change periodically, check it every time when connecting
