I can’t configure Sonos via WIFI network. Built on CIsco WLC 2504.
When setting up, you need to press the buttons on Sonos and it starts sending broadcast pacet to the network at the address 255.255.255.255. which the phone connected to the wireless network should see. The controller does not skip broadcast pacet. Enabled in the controller settings
Enable Global Multicast Mode
May be someone knows how to allow the passage of broadcast pacet through the controller?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes. I saw this. I have followed all the recommendations. I can connect to configured SONOS and play music. But I still have problems. I can not perform the initial configuration of SONOS. At the moment of pressing the button, the phone does not see SONOS
During installation, I press a button on SONOS and it starts sending a broadcast packet to the network. My phone connected to the same network via Wireless does not receive these packets. In the dump attachment from the port where SONOS is connected
One more thing, you have Global Broadcast Forwarding enabled? "Controller > General > Broadcast Forwarding > Enabled"
Please note, this can flood your wireless clients and is generally a bad idea.
Controller -> mDNS -> General -> Global snooping checked.
Controller -> General -> Broadcast Forwarding enabled.
Controller -> General -> AP multicast mode set to multicast with the ip 184.108.40.206.
Yes, I made all these settings.
I have attached a screenshot.
Sonos send broadcast packets. Wireless network dont have it broadcast packet.
