    3. Wireless Dongle for your desktop PC or a laptop with Wi-Fi enabled for activation and operation.

    How to install AirServer: 

    1. Go to the Start Button and type in “Software Center”.

    How to connect an iOS device to your PC:

    • Connect your iOS device and your computer running AirServer to the same Wi-Fi network - if you are on DISD, your computer needs to be on DISD.
    • On your iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access the Control Center.
    • Tap the AirPlay icon. You should now see a list of AirPlay enabled receivers available on your network.
    • If you do not see the AirPlay icon, or your computer is not showing, visit the troubleshooting section.
    • Tap the name of the AirPlay receiver you wish to AirPlay to. This would be the name of the computer running AirServer.

    To begin mirroring, toggle the mirroring switch. Note: This is only available if your iOS device and computer support mirroring.

    1. On your iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access the Control Center. In the Control Center, you will see an AirPlay icon, if any AirPlay receivers are detected on the network. If you do not see the AirPlay icon, or your computer is not showing, restart your device.  Fill out a heat ticket if you still cannot find it.




    2. Tap the AirPlay icon to see a list of AirPlay enabled receivers available on your network.



    3. Tap the name of the AirPlay receiver you wish to AirPlay to. This would be the name of the computer running AirServer which should be your service tag. Once you tap the name, you are connected to the computer and could immediately begin streaming content from AirPlay-enabled apps to AirServer. However, you are not yet mirroring.



    4. To begin mirroring, toggle the mirroring switch. This is only available if your iOS device and computer support mirroring. Once you toggle the switch, which would turn green, you have enabled mirroring and your device will be showing on the computer running AirServer.



    5. Tap the “Done” button to close the list of AirPlay receivers. Notice the AirPlay icon in the Control Center now lists your computer.



    6. Hide the Control Center by swiping the window downwards. Open any app, or show any content from your iOS device. It will be mirrored to the computer that is running AirServer.
