Background:
I recently replaced my old Linksys Router with a Sonicwall TZ105W.  I managed to get Wireless working Perfectly as well as Pin-holing the firewall to get certain apps to work.

The Trouble:
Airplay will not work (WLAN to Lan)
Slingcatcher Will not work from my other house to the slingbox though port 5001 is open.

My Best Guess:
Multicast support needs to be enabled.  Which I did and made sure the Lan and WLAN interfaces also has it enabled.

My Hope:  Somone knows what I'm talking about and may be able to help me get this working.

Thanks!

The easiest thing to do is not have WLAN be a seperate zone. Just bridge it to the LAN.

If you want to keep it seperate

Hi jkemp761,

The only way to have AirPlay work in this manner is to have the devices on the same network via configuring the WLAN Interface in an L2 Bridge Mode. Here is a step by step on how you can bridge your SonicWALL device: https://www.fuzeqna.com/sonicwallkb/ext/kbdetail.aspx?kbid=7081

The only way to make this work is to create a WLAN bridge as set forth in comment http:#a39416342.
