Aruba Instant and AppleTv

We are using Aruba 105's in a school enviroment. We have a flat network no VLANs. We are using roles to restrict where a student can get on our network when they are using a device they brought from home. Currently they are allowed Http and Https. The Apple TV is hardwired into our network again Flat Network. Problem is we need the students to be able to connect to the apple tv from their iPads. I have opened every port I can find related to apple Bonjour service and the best I get is a connection that lasts aprox 30 sec.

 

If someone can point me in the right direction for how to setup to restrict my students by still have apple work it would be very much appreciated.

 

Oh I am running firmware 6.2.0.0-3.2.0.1_36989

 

Thanks In advance

Re: Aruba Instant and AppleTv

does it work when you block NO ports?

Re: Aruba Instant and AppleTv

You might want to send a quick email to Apple to make sure you are not missing something like ipV6

Re: Aruba Instant and AppleTv

I found another port in a AirPlay Protocol Document Port 49152. This appears to be the key

 

Ports I have open now are

 

TCP 49152

TCP 7000

TCP 123

TCP 3689

TCP 80

TCP 443

TCP 53

 

UDP 5353

 

Will update when I has been put to test. :)

Re: Aruba Instant and AppleTv

I emailed apple and this was the response. I wasn't impressed.

 

"AirPrint and Apple TV use the Bonjour protocol to communicate. Its not port based. This may help"

 

They referred me to an Aruba document on AirGroup..

 

Thanks for your responses in the mean time.
