airserverAirPlay screen mirroring software AirServer has been updated to support iOS 7 and resolves many problems with installing the software on Windows domain computers.

A couple of weeks ago I posted an article about how to resolve a number of issues installing AirServer on domain PCs in schools. The code I posted was a work around to automatically add password and activation details for staff using AirServer which the software did not do automatically.

In AirServer 1.9.1, however, many of these issues have been resolved as well as adding support for iOS 7 devices, which previous versions of AirServer worked with inconsistently.

  1. I am a dane in Denmark. I am new to mirroring iPad to PC.
    I have succed with AirServer to my own PC/LAN (OS Win 8 (64 bit))
    I had to enable ‘Multicast Support’ in my router.
    How commom is the problem with disabled ‘Multicast Support’ ?
    Are there any sequrity issues in a larger network if ‘Multicast Support’ is enabled ?

      There are definite performance and security issues that enabling multicast on network routers cause. The details are too complex to go into in a comment post, so I’ll try to put an article together about this in the near future. If you Google “multicast performance and security” you’ll come across a lot of relevant information.

      Hope this helps.
