    File sharing help


    Hi everyone, I've switched from mac to windows, and one thing I need is airdrop.

    I want to set up a file server on my windows PC to share 1 folder locally. I would like to connect to it from my iPad with the files app.

    My iPad needs an IP address to 'connect to a server'

    How do I do this?
