How to add a Ditto Receiver — Reflector on Windows

There are two ways to configure Reflector on Windows 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 Windows computer.

Use the Ditto Configuration Utility

Use the Ditto configuration tool to add a Windows computer 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 Windows computer running Reflector through your Ditto account portal, you will need the IP address and the MAC address. This information can be found a few different ways depending on which version of Windows you're using.

Step 1 - Gather Computer's Network Information

Locate network information on Windows 10
  1. Click the network icon in the bottom-right of the screen near the clock
  2. Click “Properties” to open the network properties
  3. Locate and note the IP and MAC addresses
Locate network information on Windows 8
  1. Press the Windows key on your keyboard then type Settings into your Search bar
  2. Select PC settings
  3. Select “Network” from the menu on the left side of the window
  4. Select Connections and then Wi-Fi
  5. Select your network
  6. Locate the IP and Physical (MAC) addresses

Locate network information on Windows 7
  1. Click the network icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen near the clock
  2. Click Open Network and Sharing Center
  3. Click your network name
  4. Click Details
  5. Locate and note your IP and Physical (MAC) Address

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 "Windows Computer" or "Conference Room Computer"
  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.

Step 5

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!
