One of the issues with the Canon WFT-E6 wi-fi module is configuring and setting it up to communicate with the iPad or iPhone. There are a number of variables that need to be set before it will talk to the iPad. So if you are having problems here is my guide to how I managed to connect two WFT-6s to an iPad pro.
The following photographs show what settings I have used to enable the 1Dx & WFT-E6 to work with an iPad running ShutterSnitch.
In the Communications settings menu, enable the Communication Function.
Choose the Set Up option
Choose the Set that you wish to use, I used Set 1 for the iPad as it is the most commonly used, You could also set up other sets for iPhones or other devices.
Select Change to change the settings. Choose Change Settings Name to change its name.
Choose Lan type Wireless
then go back to LAN Settings (and choose TCP/IP and make the changes as shown in the image above, be careful these need to be precise as a single digit transposed or incorrectly entered will stop it from working. After entering details go back up the menus and choose FTP server.
Choose Target Server and enter the details for the ShutterSnitch installation on the iPad.
Enter the i.p. address for ShutterSnitch
Enter the login name for ShutterSnitch, the default login is snitch plus the password that you entered in ShutterSnitch when you first set it up.
Leave the Target Folder as per the default.
Use the men button to go back up the menu levels & choose Wireless LAN settings (this is useful if you wish to use multiple cameras so that you can give each one an identifiable SSID name.
I have mine identified as WFT-A & WFT-B and have marked with a Sharpie which camera/WFT combo is which.
In Advanced settings choose Ad Hoc 11b/g
Then use the Confirm Settings to review the changes that you have made.
Ok so that is the camera settings done, now power up the iPad and go to settings & in Wi-Fi look for your Cameras SSID name. Connect to it, it will say something like ‘No Internet Connection are you sure?” click Yes and join.
Once connected click on the blue i next to the network name and manually enter the IP details.
Fire up Shutter Snitch and you should be ready to go. Good Luck.
