Cisco ASA and Apple TV
Posted on 2014-08-19
I work in a campus environment. We have a Cisco ASA 5510 as our firewall. We also have a Cisco 5508 WLC for internal wireless clients. For our public WiFi and guest users, we have a secondary ISP connection from a different provider that they use that only provides them with Internet access ONLY. The secondary ISP does not touch my internal network at all. The goal was to provide guest WiFi access so that they could do whatever they want without impacting the school's bandwidth and business operations. So far this has worked flawlessly, until now...
Recently the school has purchased Apple TV and Crestron Air Media so that we can do device mirroring wirelessly for our users that have tablets and smart phones. This was only supposed to be for devices that purchased by the school. These devices are currently on the internal network and seem to work pretty well. Now, the administration wants folks who connect to the public and guest wifi to have access to the Apple TV and Crestron AirMedia.
My question is how do I allow in my ASA the public wifi users on the secondary ISP connection to connect to the Apple TV and Crestron device ONLY. I still want them on the secondary ISP connection, but allow them to mirror their tablets and smartphones if they enter a classroom. So far the only way i have found is to give the Apple TV and Crestron AirMedia public IP addresses and allow them to connect that way, but I am limited in the amount of available addresses so this is not a viable option. Please advise.
