Sony support center's reply to the issue.

 

Turning on Wi-Fi Direct

Android 4.1 / 4.2

To turn on Wi-Fi Direct

  1. From your Home screen, tap the Application screen icon.
  2. Find and tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
  3. Press the menu key > Wi-Fi Direct
  4. Make sure Wi-Fi Direct is turned on in the other device.
  5. Tap Search for devices.
  6. Under PEER DEVICES, tap the device you want to connect to.
  7. Wait for the status under the device name to change from Invited to Connected.

Sending files using Wi-Fi Direct

The advantage with sending files with Wi-Fi Direct is that it goes quicker to
send larger files than with, for example, Bluetooth.

To be able to transfer files between two devices you have to:

  • Make sure both devices are Wi-Fi Direct compatible
  • Make sure that both devices have installed Office Suite Viewer 7 or later
  • Share the files using the Office Suite Wi-Fi Direct menu in, for example, Album if you send a photo
     

Downloading Office Suite

To download Office Suite

  • In your Xperia™ device, download and install Office Suite Viewer 7 or later from Google Play.

Sharing a photo using Wi-Fi direct

To share a photo using Wi-Fi Direct

  1. Open Album, tap the photo that you want to share with another device.
  2. Tap the share icon and select OfficeSuite Wi-Fi Direct. Alternatively, tap the OfficeSuite Wi-Fi Direct icon.
    OfficeSuite Wi-Fi Direct starts scanning for Wi-Fi Direct devices automatically.
  3. Make sure the device you want to share the photo with has opened Office Suite.
  4. Under Available devices, tap the device you want to share the photo with.
    Its status changes to Invited.
  5. Wait for the status to change to Connected. This may take some time.
    The photo is now sent to the other device.

Re: WiFi Direct in xperia M

I am trying to connect my tablet z with my experia m. Both are fully up to date, both have officesuit 7. They are " connected" to each other on the setup screen. When I try to send a file from within officesuit m to z, office suit cannot find the other device (tablet) or sometimes says that File Commander has stopped. Anyone got any ideas, I would have thought going Sony to Sony would have been easy. Been at it for quite a while without sucess.
