        I'm trying to sort out the system/hardward requirements for using Bonjour/NSNetService to connect an iPhone to a Mac.

         

        Are these combinations possible:

         

        1. [?] Bluetooth ON, WiFi OFF on Mac and iPhone
        2. [?] Bluetooth OFF, WiFi ON on Mac and iPhone, but both devices are not part of any WiFi network (i.e. no router present)
        3. [✓ Works] Bluetooth OFF, WiFi On, Mac and iPhone part of the same WiFi network

         

        I got a Bluetooth-only NSNetService up and running between an iPhone and an iPad, but never with a Mac (MacBook Pro mid-2012). Is this a hardware issue or is it not possible to connect an iPhone and a Mac through Bluetooth alone?

         

        Thanks!

         

        PS: I set includesPeerToPeer = true for the service and browser. My code is based on the WiTap sample code.
