chromecast support with IAP

Chromecast gets associated with IAP and I am able to setup chromecast but none of the other devices in the same network are able to find any chromecasts devices.

Chromecast worked perfectly well with cheap huawei AP and with Aruba controller based network.

I tried to tweek airgroup settings but it didn't help.

2. In the Aruba GUI, go to More-->Services



3. Under the Airgroup tab, check the Enable DLNA box



4. Under AirGroup Service, enable the following:

Unfortunately didn't work. No effect with airgroup. I found under WLAN settings broadcast/multicast section disabled broadcast filtering. Multicast optimization was disabled by default. No difference if it was enabled or desabled.

Anything else I should try?

HI cjoseph,

 

The version is 6.4.2.6-4.1.1.11_52666 which should be the latest. Chromast devices are the first generation.

Re: chromecast support with IAP

Are the chromecast devices connected to the same SSID as the devices that need to control them?  Do you have Firewall policies on devices that connect to that SSID?  If you have firewall policies, please change them to unrestricted.

Re: chromecast support with IAP

They are in the same ssid and there are no firewall rules. Very basic employee ssid with security level wpa2. I just tried with both wpa2 and wpa. Let's see what happens. 

In the virtual controller point of view they look just perfect. They have got IP addresses etc. I tried with huawei and it works. Looks like something is blocked by IAP.

Re: chromecast support with IAP

It works in aruba controller based wlan. What could be so much different with aruba IAP because it doesn't work?

We need to see your entire config, to understand what could be going on.
