  Known Issues:

iOS application’s service discovery depends on Apple’s Bonjour technology, and on some WiFi routers that won’t always work.
  1. First, make sure that you have installed all the updates for both applications.
  2. Sometimes turning iPhone’s Airplane mode on and off would make the application find  synchronization server that is running within the Mac application.
  3. Another cause of such problems on the WiFi router could be: 'you probably have multicast on WiFi disabled’. That one would require some tinkering with options in your WiFi router in order to enable that option.
