Bonjour Traffic Not Forwarded From Wireless Client to Airr Print Server connected by wire to the Same Securestack AS the AP

« Go Back

Information

 
TitleBonjour Traffic Not Forwarded From Wireless Client to Airr Print Server connected by wire to the Same Securestack AS the AP
Symptoms
  • VLAN classification policy configured to forward Bonjour to VLAN to which wired server is connected
  • Air print server and apple TV can be controlled with bonjore if the client and wired device are on different Securestacks  and a middle switch does VLAN classification
  • Air print does not work if the wired printer and AP are on a different vlann but the same Securestack
Environment
  • Securestack
  • S-Series
Cause
A switch will not send traffic out the same port from which it originated unless it is routed. The contain to VLAN rules puts all Bonjor traffic in one VLAN and the switch will not send the traffic out that port unless it were being routed to a different vlan
Resolution
Replace the Securestack with a device that supports VLAN classification so that bonjour can  be placed in the Bonjour VLAN on the Edge rather than the core  switch.
