Today will be an article for MAC users, so that you have an easier way to access and use iRender’s servers.

1. Error when installing GPUHub sync on MacBook

GPUHub sync is our powerful and free file transfer tool. With fast file transfer speed, large data capacity, and completely free, you can transfer all the necessary data into our Gpuhub Sync tool at any time without connecting to the server. The data will be automatically synchronized in the Z drive inside the server, ready for you to use.

If you encounter these images when downloading GPUHub sync, then the reason is MAC warns not to install 3rd party app.

So how can you solve this issue? You should unlock third party settings follow those steps:

Step 1: Go to System Preferences

Navigate to System Preferences in the app store or click the apple-shaped icon on the left side of the screen.

Step 2: Go to Security & Privacy.

        • Click on General.
        • Click on the lock icon “click the lock to make changes“.
        • Enter Password and click unlock.
        • Now at the Allow apps downloaded Form section, choose Anywhere.

2. Cannot download remote desktop file on MAC

For macOS users, Safari is the default browser. However, our website https://app.gpuhub.net/ is most compatible with Google Chrome browser. So please use Google Chrome browser to open the web and use our services.

        • Open Chrome;
        • Open Finder;
        • In the sidebar, to the right of Google Chrome, click Eject.

After installing Google Chrome, you can change the default browser from Safari to Chrome following the instruction in 2.2.
