What are the port based recommendations for Airplay and Airprint services?

Question What are the port based recommendations for Airprint services?
Environment This article applies to Aruba Mobility Controllers running ArubaOS version 6.3.0.0 or higher.

 

The ArubaOS role- based access controls for wireless clients use ACLs to allow or deny user traffic on specific ports. Even though mDNS discovery uses the predefined port UDP 5353, application-specific traffic for services like AirPlay may use dynamically selected port numbers. Best practices are to add or modify ACLs to allow traffic on the ports described in the following tables:


NOTE:  AirPlay operates using dynamic ports (specified in the range below), but printing protocols like AirPrint use fixed ports.




Enable the following ports for the AirPlay services:


Protocol
Ports
TCP
  • 5000
  • 7000
  • 7100
  • 8612
  • 49152-65535
UDP
  • 7010
  • 7011
  • 8612
  • 49152-65535



Enable the following ports to allow AirGroup devices to access AirPrint services:

There a few ports beyond this I've seen with brief testing, here are my current service definitions:

netservice JCU-AirPlay-TCP-1 tcp list 5000,7000,7001,7100,8612
netservice JCU-AirPlay-TCP-2 tcp 49152 65535
netservice JCU-AirPlay-UDP-1 udp list 6001,6002,7000,7010,7011,8612
netservice JCU-AirPlay-UDP-2 udp 49152 65535
