Sharing content to Calibre from iPad

I just learnt how to share content from Calibre to iPad using content server and now I want to look through a my iBook library on my iPad so I can send it back to my computer by opening Safari and putting my iPad's IP address in but it doesn't seem to work. What other steps do I need to take. What numbers like /8080 do I need to add so the content can be shared?
((The reason I need to do this as I have a new computer and can't sync the iPad to the new one yet until I am sure all its content won't be deleted.))

Has anyone done this and how can I achieve it?

You can't do this easily.

You can try connecting your iDevice, opening iTunes, then File|Transfer purchases, which should pull your books from the iDevice to iTunes. Then, from iTunes, you can drag from the Library|Books folder to your desktop, then add the books to calibre.

There may also be some third-party apps that will pull media from an iDevice.
