When you want to view images on your iOS device but don’t have access to the Wi-Fi network that the Mac running Capture One Pro uses to serve the images from, you can use the internet sharing instead. This could be useful, for example, if you are a client visiting a studio and do not have the SSID or Password of the Wi-Fi network there. Some preconditions to this alternative connection must first be met, however. The Mac serving the images from Capture One Pro must access the Wi-Fi network using ethernet and must also have built-in Wi-Fi for it to share a connection with the iOS device (or a computer or a smart device using the web-browser function).
- On your Mac, go to Systems Preferences -> Sharing and highlight the Internet Sharing option but do not enable it with a check-mark yet.
- Go to Share your connection from and select Ethernet from the drop-down menu.
- In the To computers using panel, enable Wi-Fi with a checkmark.
- When you want to secure the network, click on the Wi-Fi Options button (below the panel). A Configure an internet-sharing network dialog opens.
- From Security, select WPA2 Personal and add a password, verify and select OK or Cancel to dismiss the dialog and start over.
- Now enable the Internet Sharing option from Step 1 and press Start.
- On your iOS device, click on the Settings icon and select Wi-Fi.
- Choose the applicable Network (SSID) and type in the Password from Step 4, if it was set.
- Open the Capture Pilot app on your iOS device and wait for the Local Servers list loaded.
- From the Local Servers list, click on the Server Name to connect to the session served by Capture One Pro.
