I was happy, finding that there's a bonjour gateway implemented in the cnpilot line. My understanding is that it reflects services from one vlan to another.
First of all I'm interessted if someone can use it successfull.
I tried by enabling the bounjour-gw and added a service for the appleTV from the vlan where the appleTV sits, to another vlan where my iphone want's to control it. My firewall is configured, that it allows the traffic from the iphone to the appleTV and vice versa. But if I open the applteTV control from the control center on the iphone, it can't find the apple TV.
I would also like to add a service for chromecast, but it seems that one can only use the predefined services. Is there a reason why you won't let one setup own services like _googlecast._tcp.local. ?
Also I can't delete a added service by clicking on the x. I can click as often as possible, but nothing happens, so a added service cant be deleted.
Can you please remove firewall from the equation and try the same scenario. Basically, cambium AP acts as a bonjour gateway to provide bonjour service accross VLAN's. Bonjour gateway service provides you granularity to specify the service that needs to be accessed.
Please open a Customer Support ticket, so we can gather all the necessary information at once to help resolve this issue. Without gathering all the facts, any more information than what has been provided would constitute a guess.
I am working a project where I have to build an AV network inside another companies’ network.
The “IT GUYS” Use Fortinet, and clearly don’t know what they are doing. They can’t figure out how to do a VLAN. They can’t figure out how to do a 2.4 only SSID. They don’t know how broadcasts work… It’s painful.
Yesterday came up the “wait, how do we see the iPads on the TVs?”
Remember the Airmedias you nixed!
Look you need some sort of Bonjour Gateway or MDNS. I have no idea what Fortinet does on that one.
3 hours later they moved the iPads off their network, and into the AV network DHCP.
You should have heard these pricks trying to lecture me about Trusted and Untrusted networks when we started the project… weeks ago… that should have been done in a day.
Is there a user guide that we can refer to for allowing services using Overrides ?
It would be easier with a user guide than to open tickets for every customer & device combinations. We generally see this required for USB/shared printers, wifi & wired printers, automation devices, & even AV devices.
Josh, what specifically do you need?
Bonjour Forwarding allows the administrator to set up directional access between VLANs defined on the AP to allow traffic to flow between devices.
There is an example of a rule in this post above which can be used as a starting point.
If you need further assistance, please open a ticket with customer service.
Please provide the product you are using, the version of code currently loaded, and what management platform you are using. Opening a ticket you can post a current non-working AP configuration, which can then be analyzed and feedback can be given.
If the Cambium Product User-Guide does not provide enough information to successfully navigate the operation and configuration of this or any other feature you wish to use, please open a customer support ticket, so the deficiency can be addressed.
If this is the complete section from the APs configuration, the command to enable bonjour-gw is missing.
add bonjour-gw to the top commands.
Also, if VLAN 1 is your native network connection, then this may not work.
The feature is to allow flow between VLANs normally like VLAN 1 is the bridge, but VLAN 101 and 102 are for connected traffic for say students (102) to connect to network resources on teacher VLAN (101).
