SonicWALL and Bonjour / Mac devices do not play well together...?
Posted on 2014-09-22
Client needs some advanced protection from home office for HIPAA and other compliancy, A Sonicwall TZ 105 is installed and working great other then it is causing havoc with the internal Apple devices. We have had our techs spend many hours on this little -what-should-be-very-easy project but unfortunately the Mac devices dont make it so easy.
What has been done:
Have allowed DMS through Sonicwall. Tested it with all security services turned off. Reloaded firmware to factory default. And more...
Looking on the Internet this seems to be a known issue but not many people have solved it.
Also there is a new Time Capsule in place which "has to have the wireless turned on" for it to be operational, another great Apple innovation.
Apple devices do not always show in Airplay utility and the backups from the Macbook to the time machine are not working consistently or at all.
Any help is appreciated.
