How to add a Ditto Receiver — Reflector on macOS

There are two ways to configure Reflector on macOS for use with Ditto. You can use the Ditto configuration utility or add the computer manually. Both of these options require you to download and install Reflector on your Mac.

Use the Ditto Configuration Utility

Use the Ditto configuration tool to add a Mac running Reflector software as a receiver in your Ditto account. This tool automatically detects available receivers on your network.

Manually Create a Room with Reflector

Note

If you choose to manually add a Mac running Reflector through your Ditto Account Portal, you will need the IP address and the MAC address.

Step 1 - Gather Network Information

  1. Click the Apple in the top left corner of your screen and select System Preferences

Step 2

Log in to your Ditto account and navigate to the Receivers section.

Step 3

Click “New Receiver” (or “Add Your First Receiver” if you haven’t added a receiver yet).

Step 4

  1. Enter receiver name. You can make this whatever you want, but it should be identifiable, such as "Mac Mini" or "iMac"
  2. Set the Receiver Type to Reflector
  3. Enter the network information you gathered in Step 1
  4. Add this receiver to a room. This is how you make a room “active.” Learn how to set up rooms.
    Note: You may create as many receivers as you want. You are not billed until you pair a room to a receiver to create an “active” room.

Click “Save Receiver” to save the receiver to your Ditto account. Once you pair a receiver to a room, you're ready to connect to the room or create connection instructions for your users!
