If you have trouble, this basic information might help:
- Is MacGourmet running, and is sharing set to ON either in Preferences, or by opening the "iPhone" window from the Tools menu and pressing the "Start" button?
- Is WiFi turned on on your iPhone? WiFi must be on to transfer your information.
- Is your iPhone not connected to your Mac using your USB cable? When syncing wirelessly, it's best if your iPhone is not connected to your Mac with the USB cable.
If this criteria is met, then when you press the "Sync" button in your iPhone app, you should see the name of your Mac listed there.
- If the transfer hangs on a certain recipe, try reducing the image quality a notch or two in your MacGourmet for Mac iPhone preferences. You might also try quitting both the iPhone app (by actually terminating the process using the double-tap and the application manager) and the Mac app, restarting first the Mac app and then restarting the iPhone app.
- Does your Mac not show up in the sharing list? Try quitting both the iPhone app (by actually terminating the process using the double-tap and the application manager) and the Mac app, restarting first the Mac app and then restarting the iPhone app.
- If your Mac still doesn't show up in the sharing list, or if the transfer hangs, try restarting your Mac, iPhone and wireless router, that will often help.
Resolving Firewall Issues
The following error:
Error 47: Operations could not be completed. Address family not supported by protocol family
is usually a firewall issue that can be resolved by either turning the firewall off if you don't need it on, or by allowing MacGourmet to get through it and not blocking connections from it.
Creating a Wireless Network for Syncing
If you don't have a wireless network, or you are having issues transferring your data, but you do have a wireless Mac, you can create a limited wireless network for syncing.
- Go into System Preferences > Network and turn Airport on if it's not on, and check "Show Airport status in menu bar"
- Close System Preferences and go to the Airport status menu in your menu bar. Choose "Create Network..." to create your own network. Now you should be able to follow the instructions above, under "Transferring Your Data".
