7.6. Access files from locally shared resources via 'Nearby' section

If there are locally shared resources in the network (e.g. servers or computers), you will be able to find them in the ‘Nearby’ section of the sidebar and set up a one-time connection to access shared files.

Note: This is a one-time connection and credentials are not saved after the PDF Expert app is closed.

If you need to establish a permanent connection to the server or you do not see your device among available devices in the Nearby section of the app, you can establish the connection manually. For this, open PDF Expert settings > Network > tap +Add account > select the necessary protocol (Windows SMB/FTP/SFTP) > enter your credentials and connect to the server.

To set up a 2-way sync with MAC via SFTP or to connect to MAC or PC via SMB, follow the steps outlined in our Guides. You can also establish a permanent connection with PDF Expert on another iOS device using Wi-Fi Drive.

If any devices are shared locally and displayed in the Nearby section of PDF Expert, you can access them to copy files. For this, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap Nearby in the sidebar of PDF Expert > select the Available devices > sign in (if necessary).    
  2. When this is done, you'll see a list of files which are available on another device.   
  3. Таp on any file to save it locally or tap Edit > Select files > choose "Download" to download a group of files.
