Wireless tether from G6/GX7 to a Mac?

I'd like to use the wifi feature to send small JPEGs wirelessly from my G6 and soon-to-buy GX7 to my Mac and have them appear in Aperture (or, in a pinch, iPhoto). I've read through manual and found a helpful thread on the topic

http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/5389/gh3-wi-fi-questions-and-apps-discussions/p3

but my G6 doesn't see the shared folder I've set up. I've successfully registered the G6' ad hoc wifi network on my Mac, I've created a shared folder with read &write privileges for "everyone", and I've enabled SMB sharing in Sharing preferences. Once the images hit the folder, I'll use the Aperture Hot Folder script to get them into Aperture.

Have you gotten this to work, and if so, how?
