local network sync iPhone name

Post by allech »

Not sure if this is a question for the Mac or the iOS part of the forum:
Is there a way to set the name under which an iPhone shows up when selecting "Synchronization" / "Local network" in the Mac OS X version of iCompta?
I have one phone that shows up with the name I set for it on the device (under iOS' Settings > General > About > Name) however an other phone just shows up as "iPhone", even though I have a name set for it the same way (on the device). They are of different iOS versions (not sure if that should matter, though)

No you can't, it displays the name that the device advertises on the network, so it should be the one you set in Settings > General > About > Name. I don't know why it doesn't work for your second iPhone sorry.

Thanks. Interesting that the iPhone shows up with its name for iTunes (Finder) wifi-sync but not in iCompta. Must be some new security setting/mode I'm unaware of (the other phone that shows up with the correct name is an older iOS version)
