How do you use a local SMB server (like a Windows computer or NAS) on iPadOS Files app?
I’ve been looking for this information on Google and Youtube and I couldn’t find it.
Articles keep mentioning SMB server support and being able to read and write to folders via SMB.
My Windows 10 PC has a working network share already. I also have a WD NAS that has SMB support. I’ve been using both just fine, on my desktop and laptop and even VLC for iOS. They all work correctly.
But I have no idea how it’s supposed to work in the new Files app. I can see the “Connect to Server” menu item but it doesn’t list network computers. And typing the computer’s network name or the “smb://” IP address doesn’t work either. (the IP address option also seems flimsy since it always gets a new address from the network’s DHCP.)
