Google Cast 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 Service Browser (Android).
- After opening Service Browser, you can see a list of all Bonjour protocols that are visible on your network.
- Press _googlecast._tcp. to get a list of all devices advertising this record.
- 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)
