When I‘m traveling, I occasionally have only cellular connection for some time. Still want to sync devices I have with me (iPhone, iPad, MacBook) to do culling and editing with external editors.
Well I can setup my iPhone as a personal hotspot and connect other iOS devices or Macs to the hotspot via WLAN.
Tried it but Mylio didn‘t sync via peer to peer connection over the hotspot WLAN network.
It did work, if I enabled “sync using cellular” on the iPhone, something I was hesitant to do.
I assume Mylio needs to connect to the Mylio server to initiate the syncing. What I do not know is, whether the actual transfer of the pictures and videos is done over cellular as well (which would be bad) or if Mylio is only using cellular to setup the syncing but the actual data transfer is done via peer to peer connection over the hotspot WLAN.
Does anyone have a definite answer?
A tutorial how to sync devices without having an internet connection would helpful as well in case this is possible technically.
