Connect to your Mac

Connection with your Mac should be established automatically once you follow those 3 steps.

1. Download

Download installer on your Mac
from https://cherpake.com/get

2. Install

Install Remote for Mac helper app

3. Connect

Make sure you are connected to the same network both on your Mac & iOS device

Manual Connection

On most networks, your Mac should be detected automatically, and you should be able to connect to it, with no additional actions required. But some networks like Starbucks, libraries and other public places, block Bonjour protocol which is used to make the connection as simple as possible, and in this case, you might need to use QR code, which includes your Mac IP address, to connect.

1. Show QR Code

On your Mac, click on the "Remote for Mac" icon in the menu and select “Show QR Code“

2. Scan QR Code

Tap “Scan QR Code“ and scan it with your iPhone/iPad

Device authorization

If you have "Require authorization" setting enabled on your Mac, you will see this screen indicating you have to authorize this device on your Mac. For more details check "Remote for Mac".

No Wi-Fi / Won't connect

If you don't have Wi-Fi network you can use, or you network blocks connection to your Mac (usually school, library, university and etc. networks do this), you have couple of options:

* Share your network connection as described here: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25327
* Create your own network https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25186
* Use your phone hotspot

You might also want to check firewall settings on your Mac.

Still can't connect

You might want to try to reset network settings on your iOS device: https://support.apple.com/HT204051, and if that doesn't help, well it's time to contact me I guess and I will do my best to help. Best way to contact me is using iOS app settings -> “Contact Support“ this way I will receive app logs and will be able to see what's the problem and maybe suggest a solution.
