I recently purchased a Samsung NX1000 camera which has built-in WiFi, and supports sending images via WiFi-Direct to other devices. When I try to do this while both my Mac and the camera are in the same WiFi network (my home router), the camera doesn't find any WiFi-Direct compatible devices.
I scoured the web for information about WiFi-Direct, obviously, but the most promising information I found were a number of articles in a tech blog back in 2009, saying it will "come soon" to Mac OS and other consumer electronic devices. Other people on StackOverflow tried programming against it (mostly with mobile platform SDKs such as Android/WP7/iOS), replacing Bluetooth functionality, but that's not what I want.
I also read that the AirDrop functionality of Lion is in parts based on the idea of WiFi-Direct, but it seems they are not quite the same (confusing me further).
From the behavior of the camera, I gather there must be a way to "enable" my Mac for WiFi-Direct. Is that true, and if so, how do I do it?
