How do I make my tablet/phone find my computer automatically?

Here are some suggestions you can try:

  • Make sure your computer and your tablet/phone are on the same local network (i.e., they are connected to the same wireless router).
    If your computer and your tablet/phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network, your computer should be automatically discovered by Splashtop CamCam from your tablet/phone.

  • Make sure the Streamer program on your computer has been successfully launched and the version is v1.6.0.1 or later (an icon will display in the Windows system tray).

  • Try to add the computer profile from your tablet/phone.  To add a computer profile automatically, follow this guide for assistance: How do I add or specify a computer I want to connect to?
  • If you have created multiple user accounts on the computer (Windows), try to delete the registry KEY under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Splashtop Inc.\ ,  then restart the computer and try again.

  • Allow Splashtop Remote as a trusted application program to your firewall software application:
    Windows configuration: Firewall Settings for Splashtop Remote.
    If you have another 3rd-party anti-virus/firewall software application (e.g., ESET NOD, MSE, McAfee, Norton, ZoneAlarm, DoorStop X, VirusBarrier X etc...) installed on your computer, please configure to add Splashtop Remote services into the allowed program list of that application.

  • If your firewall software needs to add files respectively, please add the files as follows:

- DataProxy.exe
- inputserv.exe (only necessary for Splashtop Remote Touchpad)
- spupnp.exe
- SRFeature.exe
- SRLogin.exe
- SRServer.exe
- TCP ports 6783~6785 in default if your firewall requests to open ports instead of adding exception files
