Can I play Apple TV across routed subnets?
Posted on 2013-05-13
I have a large environment that has (3) routed subnets for LAN clients and (1) subnet dedicated for wireless clients (laptop, i-device, android, etc...).
We have installed an Apple-TV on the wireless network so that we can send media to it with AirPlay on MACs / iPads / iPhones. This has been working great!
The first issue with this came up when a wired network client wanted to share data with the AppleTV via AirParrot. The Apple TV device is not able to be discovered unless we use a laptop that is also on the WiFi network, the same laptop connected to the LAN with the WiFi card off cannot find the AppleTV device.
The LAN consists of an HP Procurve Layer 3 switch with (4) routable VLANs created. There is no restriction between subnets.
I've tried selectively rebroadcasting UDP 5353 (multicast DNS) from the wireless segment to the LAN segment, and vice-versa (both at the same time and opposite times) without success...no matter what I do, I cannot see the AppleTV unless the client that needs to see it is on the WiFi network with it.
If the AppleTV is connected to both WiFi and Wired, is it able to use BOTH networks? Any help is appreciated...our requirements are to get the AppleTV accessible by both wired and wireless clients to send media to it, either via AirPlay or AirParrot.
