Hello all,
Does WLC and WISM support Bonjour protocol across Vlans?
if it does then
what software version of Cisco WLC model 4402 and WISM model WS-SVC-WISM-1-K9 support Bonjour servcie across subnets.
I want to have apple devices like app TV, Air server can be used on different VLANs., the current version we have 4.2 and 5.0 does not support Apple TV across Vlans, it is only can be seen on local network
Please advice
Thank you very much
Phillips T.

This won't be supported natively on a 4402 WLC - v7.0 code doesn't support Bonjour.

1. The 4400 Series WLCs only support code up-to

2. The Bonjour Gateway was introduced into the code at 7.4.  Previous versions starting at did have Bonjour support, but not cross-VLAN Bonjour support.

To clarify, you could get Bonjour working on the same VLAN without Bonjour support in the WLC code as long as you had multicast configured correctly.
