Forum Cross Platform with Xamarin

Xamarin cross platform - Mac issue

ColmColm USMember ✭✭

If this is in the wrong section, please move it to the correct one. Thanks.

I have a Xamarin.Forms cross platform application that I have been working on for some time. It is tested and working on both UWP and Android platforms as I am using a Windows machine. I now need to test the iOS application somehow. I have a borrowed MacBook Air that I have updated to OS X Sierra and installed Visual Studio for Mac.

I've put both my Windows machine and the MacBook on the same wifi network, however when I open the Mac agent in Visual studio I do not see the Mac connected.

I have enabled remote login on the Mac and tried entering the IP address, but it still does not want to connect.

Another question I have; When I do figure it out and get the Mac connected, does the windows version of Xamarin come with an iOS simulator or will I need to deploy it to a device in order to test the application?
