Yesterday, Steam released its In-Home Streaming feature to everyone. The feature allows you to install games on one PC and stream them via your home network to any other machine. Paste back your steam folder: overwriting any files. If the games don’t appear you may have to install them by double clicking them. Steam won’t redownload all the files but it will check all the local files and ensure they are correct. Your steam games should all appear in steam for you’re gaming pleasure.
Agent86 Posted January 17, 2015, Updated January 18, 2015, Advanced Tips & Tricks for Steam In-Home Streaming I have spent the past few months playing around with Steam In-Home Streaming. I’ve run into issues, solved error messages, and discovered a few handy tips and tricks. In this article, I’ll give you guys the lowdown on maximizing your Steam In-Home Streaming experience. Helpful Remote Tools Chances are good that your “host” computer is going to be pretty far away from your “client” computer when you’re using Steam in-home streaming. This means that messing with the host is going to be a pain in the neck. Luckily, any geek with IT experience knows there are several highly useful remote management tools that are easy to set up and use.
(If you happen to already be an IT pro, then skip ahead to the next section – I’m assuming at least some gamers haven’t been exposed to this already, but for you guys it’s going to be super rudimentary) Remote Desktop: RDP or VNC First up we have Remote Desktop Protocol, or RDP. RDP allows you to control the desktop RDP is generally supported on most versions of Windows, so if you have a Mac or Linux box you can either install 3rd party software to use it, or you can use something like VNC instead. You can set up the remote desktop server on the “host” machine, and then install the remote desktop client on the “client” machine.
That way, if you need to change Windows settings, reboot the machine, install drivers, or do any other maintenance work, you can do so from the client PC rather than heading back over to wherever your host PC is. Going over specifically how to install RDP or VNC is beyond the scope of this article – I just want to make you aware that it is something that exists and is useful.
For OSX or Linux, try. Beware of “RealVNC” as it used to be open source once upon a time, but has since gone commercial and is a bit naggy for money. Wake on LAN If your host computer is asleep when you want to play, you’re going to have to wake it up. Sure, you could go press the power button, but that’s a waste when you can use Wake on LAN instead. Note: Doing this over a wired Ethernet network is easy, but not all wireless adapters support wake-on-LAN.

Wired networks are quite a bit better for Steam In-Home Streaming in a number of other ways, so try to use wired Ethernet if you can. There are some network card settings that have to be configured in order for your host PC to be able to respond to wake on LAN packets. Has a good article about configuring these settings. After setting this up, you’ll need a program that can send the Wake on LAN packet. Grab or and you’ll be good to go. You’ll also need to know the MAC (sometimes called “physical” or “hardware”) address of the network card.
You can find this with ipconfig /all at the command line on Windows. The Screen is Locked on the Remote Computer This is a pretty common error you’ll encounter with Steam In-Home Streaming, especially if you’re using RDP and Wake on LAN. Windows can be configured to lock the screen automatically when the computer wakes from sleep.

Also, when you close a RDP session, the screen tends to lock automatically as well. Thus, this isn’t a problem that is easy to fix with RDP. The fix is a one-line batch file. For%%i in (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9) do ( tscon%%i /dest:console ) Just stick this in a file, call it logout.bat, and then when you’re connected via RDP, instead of closing the session with the “X” button, right click and run this batch file as Administrator instead. Sometimes right after doing this, Steam will still complain with the same error message as before. Just give it a few seconds and then try again.
Troubleshooting Green Screens Occasionally when you start streaming a game with Steam In-Home Streaming, the game appears as a green screen instead of showing you the game video. I’ve found that some games just don’t work with in-home streaming, but some will start working if you change the video settings. Try toggling fullscreen or changing the resolution and see if that helps.
If not, try contacting the game developer and see if there’s something on their end they can fix with a patch. Ending Streaming Without Quitting the Game Okay, this one is super useful. If you’re streaming a game and then you want to go back to playing it on the host PC, you have to be able to quit the streaming client without quitting the game.
