Infuse refuses to connect to iMac

Hi,

I had to re-install everything on my iMac after its library got corrupted. That went quite smoothly. Only thing is: I cannot seem to connect my Apple TV 4 to the movie folders on the iMac anymore. Whatever I try, I get the error ‘name and password combination not correct. CLOSE’. (I had to create a new user on the iMac, but on the computer, this runs okay. To connect Infuse on the Apple TV with the iMac I tried every possible login name and password, including the old ones of course).
The Apple TV does see the iMac though; I can open iTunes and Computers to play the movies and music that are parked there.

Finally, I uninstalled and re-installed Infusie Pro. To no avail… :frowning:
I do hope you can help me out (so I can proceed with the next problem: re-connecting the printer…)

Thanks for your help!

There are a few things to check.

SMB is enabled on your Mac (more info here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204445).
At least one user is selected under ‘Windows File Sharing’ (as shown under ‘Advanced Options’ in the link above).
Selected username and password are being entered in Infuse.

Note: iCloud username/password cannot be used. If you’re using an iCloud ID to log in to your Mac, you will need to set up a new ‘Sharing Only’ user as described here: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/set-up-other-users-mtusr001/mac

It was the missing SMB-link. Thanks a lot, problem solved!
