How to configure multicast between VLANS on cisco switches 2960.

we have multiple VLANS and we are adding users to VLAN 55. our main VLAN being VLAN 95.

all the printers are on VLAN 95, when I connect to VLAN 55, the client doesnt see the printers anymore. I can ping them but no more bonjour.
If I had a printer to vlan 55 then I can see it and print to it.


here is what I did so far but still not working:

this is done on our cisco router
I set up ip pim dense-mode on the 2 VLAN interface
ip multicast-routing

on the switches, I enabled snooping
ip igmp snooping.

is this even feasible? if so could someone direct me in the right direction?

thank you

As my understanding, Apple bonjour protocol is rely on link local multicast, and which is not routable by the native design. However, some linux based bonjour gateway can achieve your requirement, the Cisco and some other brand wireless controller can act as the bonjour gateway as well.

Which is my experience for around two years before from my customer they required the Airplay feature across vlan, but they finally decided to purchase additional apple tv on different vlan to instead due to security concern. Anyway, I'm not sure any enhancement on Bonjour during the time.

Hope this can help and let me know if you got the final solution.

You need to install a Bonjour gateway on your network.  Install something like Avahi and connect it to all subnets that require access to Bonjour services, as well as subnets that host the services.
