    I've discovered that my Pixel 2 is having trouble communicating unidirectionally with my iMac (running OS High Sierra). The computer can ping the phone fine, and when I use a photo transfer utility moving photos from the computer to the phone is 100% reliable. The converse if the problem. When I use the same photo transfer utility but want to move photos from the phone to the computer, recognition of the computer is very poor. If I repeatedly prompt the app to upload, in 1 or 2 out of 10 attempts the iMac will be "seen" by the phone resulting in a successful upload. I've been living with this, but now have another utility I want to use on the phone that requires reliable bidirectional communication.

    I downloaded a ping utility for the phone and it is unable to ping the computer despite reliable communication with the home wifi network for internet functions.

    I will try these connections with another computer to try and pin down where in fact the problem is rooted, Pixel 2 vs my iMac.

    Any other suggestions on how to proceed in troubleshooting this problem?
