Configure your network
It is common to have guests and external people connect to a separate network from your internal users and Airtame. This might mean that you have to configure your network so that each VLAN has access to Airtame. We have illustrated and explained our recommended solutions for this here, together with network requirements that should be met.
Best practice for how Guests and External users should Connect to Airtame
Share from Browser
The easiest and most flexible way for guest and external users to connect to Airtame is using the share from browser feature. This process does not require any app installation and can be done via various common browsers.
Native streaming protocols
Airtame supports the following native screen-sharing protocols:
- Google Cast
These native streaming protocols make it easier for guest users to connect, as it does not require the installation of any applications or software. They can just use the streaming option built into their PC, tablet, or phone.
These streaming protocols are by default disabled on Airtame devices, so you would need to make sure they are enabled and ready for your guests to connect and present.
Portable / Guest App
For users without administrator rights or users who will only be using Airtame once, you can use the Portable / Guest App. It doesn't need to be installed nor does it require administrator privileges.
Your guests can simply type in airtame.app in their browser, which will trigger a download of the portable app for the platform it is accessed from.
- MacOS users without administrator rights can download the software from here https://airtame.com/download/ and run the dmg files directly without dragging them to the application folder.
- Windows users, we have a "Portable" version of the app that does not require installation or admin rights. You can download it from here https://airtame.com/download
Tip: place the Portable app on a USB stick, to allow the guest users to simply plug it into their computer and stream it to the Airtame device by clicking on the Airtame application.
