To connect successfully your Mac to another Mac, make sure that:
- SyncMate is installed on all Macs you are going to sync with.
- Remote Mac is online.
- The remote side has real IP address. It must be accessible from the Internet disregarding whether remote IP address is static or dynamic.
To connect your Mac to another one for syncing, follow this instruction:
1. The first thing you should do is configure your Mac’s Incoming Connections.
3. Thanks to Bonjour support, SyncMate automatically locates on a local network and displays the list of other Macs you can connect to (online Macs with SyncMate installed).
4. If you want to, you can choose “Add a Mac manually” option from the drop-down list and enter IP address or DNS name of the remote Mac manually. If you changed the default 27384 TCP port in Incoming Connections of the remote Mac, enter it after a colon.
The sync process must be initiated on one Mac only. There is no need to press “Sync” button on your second (remote) Mac. Pressing “Sync” button on the main Mac means that sync process will be performed on both Macs.
