AirPlay uses Bonjour to advertise itself on your network so sending devices automatically find AirServer. If your network has Bonjour/mDNS and multicast enabled, it is possible to verify if the Bonjour advertisement is happening correctly using a 3rd party application. This can be done as follows:

  • Download the Flame Services Browser application (available on iOS, iPadOS & macOS).
  • After opening Flame, you can see a list of all devices that are visible on your network. Press the name of the device that is running AirServer.

  • This opens up a list with information on that specific device. At the bottom, you will find a list of advertised Bonjour records. Below you can find a list of all Bonjour records that are advertised for each protocol. These should be visible if AirServer is to be discoverable for all protocols.
    • _airplay._tcp. (AirPlay)
    • _airserver._tcp. (AirServer)
    • _display._tcp. (Miracast)
    • _googlecast._tcp. (Google Cast)
    • _raop._tcp. (AirPlay)
