I'm using airdrop to transfer files and stuff to another macbook. Looking at the output of
ifconfig, I can see that airdrop creates a VNIC to communicate with the other computer.
Is there a way I can use that connection as a full fledged AdHoc network connection, i.e ping the other computer, use normal file sharing etc.?
Because even though I can use airdrop while being connected to another wifi network (i.e the network card can connect to an adhoc connection as well as an infrastructure connection simultaneously), if I use an adhoc network through the wifi icon in the top bar, I am disconnected from the other wifi connection.
