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
