I was trying to read into the differences between OS X server 3 and 4 (Yosemite) when I stumbled upon this rather interesting page.
OS X Server File Sharing service lets users store and share folders and files on the server. Users can access file shares from Mac and Windows computers and from iOS devices, with no special software
They specifically say that it should be possible to access file shares from iOS devices without third party software like e.g. Transmit. I can however not for my life find anything, anywhere about how this is actually supposed to work or how one would configure it.
Spontaneously it sounds like it would be handled by the new storage provider API in iOS 8, but as far as I can see, only iCloud drive is included in the system.
Does anyone know anything about this?
