Apple TV

Can an AppleTV be connected to a MacBook or Macmini ? and an apple configurator profile setup on the macmini / MacBook be imported into the apple tv ?

I assume if this can be done, that the macmini / MacBook can then be removed and the apple tv doesn't need to be connected to either of these ?

It can but some users are finding the firewall to be the issue.

Try this first and then if no success consider the firewall:
Make sure you iOS and TV software are up to date and your iOS device has Wi-Fi turned on. On your Apple TV, go to Settings then to General and to Network and make sure you are connecting to the same Wi-Fi network on your iOS device. On your iOS device hit setting  and Wi-Fi and confirm that this matches your Apple TV.

The reason i'm looking to do this is because the college I work at uses a proxy for Internet access. Apple TV does not allow wireless connectivity through a proxy, and I have been informed that apple configurator needs to be setup with wireless proxy settings and linked to apple tv.
