Allow Multicast Traffic on StandAlone AP H500

Hi,

I was wondering how to make suer that the AP does not drop multicast traffic when it is on standalone mdeo.
On a Zone Director, each WLAN can be set individually by unticking the box for "Drop multicast traffic on this WLAN" - but how can you be sure on a standalone AP?

I found this:
wlan9         up       AP     wlan9    1        94:f6:65:78:53:2c chromecast2   

set qos wlan9 directed multicast disable
set qos wlan9 igmp disable

set qos eth0 directed multicast disable
set qos eth0 igmp disable

but I am not sure it does the exact same thing - I am trying to use a Chromecast and it needs MDNS to work and I believe this is the issue.

Help?

Thanks,
Ricardo

Hello Ricardo, 

   Yes you are issuing commands telling the AP not to snoop IGMP and reply on behalf of clients,
which means let MDNS/Multicast flow thru Eth/Wireless interfaces, and let the clients answer the
IGMP join/update messages directly.  Has this worked for you?

Unfortunately no. 

I read many threads and they all had the same fix so I am not sure if the problem is coming from the AP - although it would make sense since it is where the device is connected...

I will probably have to check the whole network again.

Thanks Michael,
Ricardo
