You must type the address on your computer’s web browser address bar exactly as it appears in the screen of the Wifi transfer app on your iOS device. The complete IP address will start with http:// and end with a 4 digits port

It may take some time to transfer large files like those videos/movies or when you choose to transfer many photos at
once. When your internet connection is not stable or being interrupted, the Wifi transfer app may take couple of
attempts to establish communication again. If you are copying files between an iOS and computer, your web browser
on the computer may get stuck sometimes. In such case, you can try to restart the web browser on your computer.
Alternatively you can also use another web browser on your computer if any to access your iOS device.

Sometimes, shutting down an errant app is the best way to cure problems with the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch.
To close the Wifi Transfer app on your iOS device, you must get to your task bar, press down the home button at the
bottom of your iOS device twice in a row. Touch one of the app icons and hold your finger against it until the icons
begin to shimmer. A red button with a minus sign will appear at the top of the icons. When you see this button, you
can release your finger and then simply tap the button for the Wifi transfer to close it.
7. Using a hotel, corporate, or public network?
Sometimes you may find that the Wifi transfer works in some public networks not another. Most likely it is because
some of the public networks are configured to prevent communication between devices. If this is the case you need
to use a different wifi network.
If you have any other connection issues and/or solutions, please feel free to leave in the comment area so other Wi-fi
transfer app users will benefit from it.
