    I think the only way you will do that is having to do the stuff on the Ipad screen itself.

    Not had airserver working for ages and getting no reply from their support.

    Time to file a complaint with Paypal!

    Paypal are no help!

    The item is a digital download and not covered under their buyer protection scheme! They bury that in section 13.3 of the T&C's!!

    For anyone following -

    I got a reply from the creator after emailing the account used for their Paypal.

    They have released a new PC version 1.0 to thier website AirServer - PC Download

    They have added a website URL and response code for those of us behind proxy servers. This seems to be a little slow but does work successfully!

    Im still sceptical over their support but will press for a more definite answer!

    ^ is it possible for the URL that you talk of. Have used this at home and is pretty good, would like to try it at work but as you say because we are behind a proxy I am having no luck

    When you install the latest version and have purchased a licence when you input it into the program and attempt to activate from behind a proxy it will detect and swap to the alternate, web based authentication.

    The link is unique to the install and generated in the program itself.

    Make sure you have Bonjour print services installed, that's the bit that makes AirServer discoverable by your iPad. I seem to remember Bonjour comes packaged in with the iTunes installer, but if you unpackage iTune you can install Bonjour just by itself.

    The AirServer installer prompts you if you dont have DirectX or Bonjour and takes you to the relevant download pages.

    We had no problem installing Ver 1.01 and it worked first time ... We work behind the SWGFL proxy. The install prompted for Bonjour but gave an error message .. something about direct x so we went to the MS site and installed the latest version ... The prog works well now but with scratchy sound on certain PC's ... others work fine ... (All W7)

    That can be down to the version of iPad, the age of the PC and the speed/bandwidth of your WiFi.

    ipad 2 & iphone 4s, top spec laptop (i will also try it on my home pc)
    funny thing is i can record a video whilst mirrored and its fine, also facetime etc no probs with getting mirrored image, not jerky or anything, just when i try to play a video thats in my camera roll/pictures folder....
    im at home now and just tried it, although it doesnt crash, it just freezes and hard drive goes mental??
    i just tried to play a music video on my iphone and ipad via youtube whilst mirrored and again it mirrors it perfectly....weird...

    iPad 2 does not have the CPU power, iPhone 4s is borderline. You may be lucky! Also remember that with a laptop your going wireless to wireless (I assume) try laptop hardwired.

    You have to remember the sizes of the files, they can be high size MP4 files that its trying to render on screen and stream.

    Thanks for that Chris, i installed it onto my desktop last night at home and i was able to play a video clip from my iphone to desktop flawlessly on Airserver
    i tried the same on my laptop at home and it wont play (just freezes)
    At school today ive installed Reflection and i can play video clips from ipad and iphone to my laptop....allthough they are stuttery both wirelessly and hardwired, they do play and the app refuses to crash!
    shame really cos i prefer the Airserver over the Reflection, just seems better?

    more testing for me
