It only takes a few steps to pick up File Getter.
You should be able to access all your files in just a few minutes...
(requires Mac OS X 10.8 or above)
The setup Helper will install itself.
If you use the default firewall on your system, then the helper will configure that correctly.
If you use your own firewall application, then you'll need to make sure it allows VLC Streamer to communicate through the firewall
By now, you should be able to see your computer in the File Getter app on your iPhone/iPad/iPod'.
Tap on the computer and enjoy!
