This feature can be used to allow Bonjour to work across multiple VLANs. When you enable Bonjour forwarding, Bonjour requests from clients on this SSID will be forwarded to the VLAN that you define here. You can choose specific services as well to enable Bonjour forwarding for a limited subset of services, e.g. only for AirPlay.
To enable Bonjour forwarding, the SSID must first be set to "External DHCP server assigned" (as configured under Configure > Access Control > Client IP and VLAN).
To turn on Bonjour forwarding, first enable Bonjour forwarding under Configure > Access Control > Client IP and VLAN > External DHCP server assigned > Bonjour forwarding.
Click Add a Bonjour forwarding rule to create a new forwarding rule.
- Description: Specify a name for the rule.
- VLAN: Select one VLAN where network services are running. Bonjour requests will be forwarded to these VLANs. If you want to specify multiple VLANs for one or more services, you must create multiple Bonjour forwarding rules. Please note that the service VLAN cannot be the native untagged VLAN, which is usually 1.
- Services: The list of services that can be forwarded include:
- All services
- AFP (Apple File Sharing)
Bonjour forwarding will not work for SSIDs with Layer 2 LAN isolation enabled.
