Flexconnect and mDNS

jrod1799

Hello all,

 

I am trying to implement Airprint on a WLAN that has Flexconnect local switching enabled and I read that enabling Flexconnect and mDNS on the same WLAN is not possible. Can someone explain the why? I am a little confused on that part. All I can find is that it's not possible. Does it have something to do with the WLAN VLAN Mapping?

 

I have a Cisco Controller 3504 and Cisco AP 2800 series.

Can you provide a reference link for stating that ?

I think there is no such restriction

I agree... same subnet works, the issue is when they, devices, are not in the same subnet which typically requires an mDNS gateway.

Yes, this part of the article is what confused me. My WLANs have flexconnect local switching enabled.

"FlexConnect APs will join the CAPWAP multicast group only if they have centrally switched WLANs. Flex APs with only locally switched WLANs do not join the CAPWAP multicast group."

Hello,

To use mDNS gateway solution between FlexConnect Wireless & Wired devices then please use the IP as Bonjour gateway.

The Bonjour gateway switch will allow the service discovery and distribution between VLANs based on implemented policies. Kindly refer following deployment guide for implementation details:
