I cannot connect to my imac1 via SMB.
I am able to connect from my iphone or my mac book via smb://eilamgross-s-imac1.local and it works without any problem. But infuse 6 pro refuses to connect.
I downloaded Wireshark as you suggested.
NOt sure what do you want exactly.
Here is a screen capture:
It was all connected through 5G with the iMac connected also via cable… However… following your question I changed all to 2.4G and disconnected the cable, it did not help. Moreover, the MBP stayed with 5G while the AppleTV was 2.4G and it all still worked just fine with the MBP.
(the 2.4G and 5G all come from the same router)
In the “Add Files” menu under “Available Shares” (or something) there should be a “Other” button where you can add shares manually.
It looks like this menu but you can edit the field where it says “eilamgross-s-imac1.local”
There, replace “eilamgross-s-imac1.local” with the local IP address of your iMac. Not sure if 10.xx… is your internet or local IP. On your Mac you can open the Network page in your system settings and it will tell you the local IP of your Mac.
I’m setting up a big sur iMac to try a few things for this but in the meantime, just a wild shot in the dark, could you try changing the address from “eilamgross-s-imac1.local” to “eilamgross-s-imac1.home”? I had this affect network connections before and for some reason on Mac sometimes changing the word local to home made things work.
