Understanding Ditto

Technical Requirements

Ditto is a diverse screen mirroring solution that works across multiple platforms. This page explains network and platform-specific requirements.

Receiver requirements

Ditto supports a number of receivers including Windows computers, Apple TVs and Chromecasts.

Ditto Receiver for Windows
Windows 10
Minimum .NET 4.6

Apple TV - With Ditto Receiver App
Apple TV HD (tvOS 11 +)
Apple TV 4K (tvOS 11 +)

Apple TV - Without Ditto Receiver App
Apple TV 2 (OS Version 4.4+)
Apple TV 3 (OS Version 4.4+)
*Apple TVs unable to run tvOS are limited in functionality

Chromecast 1
Chromecast 2
*Chromecast is limited in functionality

Network requirements

Minimum of 1 Mb/s

Ditto Receiver and Ditto Connect Ports
When using the Ditto Receiver and Ditto Connect applications, only one port needs to be open between networks. Even on different VLANs Ditto can communicate as long as the port is open and routable between the VLANs.

Ditto Connect / Receiver

TCP Port 55200


Legacy Port Requirements
Connecting devices to old receivers that are not compatible with the Ditto Receiver App requires the following ports.


TCP: 7000, 7100, 47000, 5353
UDP: 5353

Google Cast

TCP: 8008, 8009, 5353
UDP: 1900, 5353

Google Cast and AirPlay require a dynamically assigned TCP/UDP port between 49152-65535.


  • Hardwire receivers when possible for the best performance.
  • Ditto supports separate VLANs as long as those networks can communicate with each other.
