Bonjour Gateway / ACL

  • 1
  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
Is it necessary to open the associated ports in your ACL when using a Bonjour Gateway at the Zone Director?  In other words, if you have a BG advertising AirPlay is it necessary to allow traffic on ports 7000, 7001, etc?  I ask because I can get Airserver mirroring to work great between ipads on vlan 2 and wired Windows PCs on vlan 1, but for some reason it's not working on my wired imacs running AirServer - the ipads see them, but cannot mirror.  I thought maybe I was missing a port.

Thanks

You may need to define a Bonjour bridge service for AirPlay between the source and destination VLANs,
under the ZD WebUI, Configure/Bonjour Gateway page?

Right, the first part of my post is asking if you have to open ports in addition to using a bonjour gateway.

These "canned" bridge services *should* include the service-types necessary.
If still not working, we may need a Wireshark trace (or to understand if the application uses more than just AirPlay, etc).

Just a quick follow up, I have had to open several ports to get AirServer to work across subnets:

7000
7100
5000
6010-6012
49152 (not quite sure about this one exactly)
5001
5002

This was all gleaned from wireshark troubleshooting and may be specific to different versions of iOS and whether AirServer is installed on a PC or Mac

Thanks for sharing your Wireshark analysis findings!
