Airwave between wired and wireless vlans

Ok, I am stumped on how to configure AirGroup properly.  Maybe I am missing something.  I can't get any wired mdns servers to show up on quieres for wireless devices.

 

This configuration is a 3200 running 6.4 with a cisco switch doing the L2/L3 management.  Vlan 1 is wired and Vlan 2 is the wireless.  The controller has an ip on each vlan.  AirGroup shows the devices, servers on the wired and clients on the wireless yet the clients can't see the servers at all.  When I did a debug on mdns it said no query was returned to the client every time.  Is this a supported setup?  Did I miss something?  I've poured through the documentation and I can't find anything that makes any difference.  I don't have an airgroup domain defined, I didn't see anything that said a single controller needed it.  I don't have any ACLs on either side that should be blocking 5353 traffic.  So I'm stumped, if anyone has any advice I'd apprecate it.

Thanks.

Are you doing ClearPass registration? If not, be sure the checkbox is disabled.

Re: Airwave between wired and wireless vlans

Thanks Tim, I don't have any of the clearpass stuff turned no.  Here is the stauts output, I didn't want to put it because it was so long.  I have toggled the ipv6 (we do have working ipv6 in the environent) but it doesn't work on or off.

Re: Airwave between wired and wireless vlans

Hi,

Did you find a solution to this issue? I am experiencing the the same, with a little difference that I trunked the wired vlan all the way to the controller.

Thank you!

Re: Airwave between wired and wireless vlans

No I haven't found a solution, I'm sure i am doing something wrong. I have
2 vlans, one dedicated for wifi and one dedicated for wired. The APS are
on the wired vlan, the wireless is a tunneled vlan. The controller has
interfaces on both vlans. I can't see mdns items on the wired vlans from
the wireless. I did do a debug logging and the mdns queries were making it
to the controller, but the controller would reply with "no services
available" or something like that. If you figure it out let me know!

Sure, Mike! Thanks for the reply! I am doing some packet capture and reviewing controller configurations to try to figure it out. I´ll let you know if find something!

Re: Airwave between wired and wireless vlans

arubasecrets,

 

Can you see your wired mdns devices in "show airgroup servers"?

What mdns devices are you trying to expose to the wireless users?

What routes the traffic from the wireless to the wired devices?

Hi Cjoseph,

 

I am experiencing a similar issue as Arubasecrets, expect that my wired vlan is tagged all the way to the controller. I do see my Air Group servers in "show airgroup servers" (below). They are all AirPrint servers.

(CTL_WLAN-01) #show airgroup servers

00:26:73:47:e6:64  172.30.1.95   mDNS  IE0686     airprint  4     N/A
Num Servers: 5.

 

The route from the controller to the wired AirGroup servers is successfully traced from the controller (below).

If I try to to see the AirGroup/airPrint servers from my iPhone in the wireless network, which is in another vlan (192 in my case), no answers are received as you can see in the process log below.

However, If there is an AirPrint server in the wireless vlan 192, I can see it in my iPhone!

Please make sure you do not have "ip nat inside" on that interface or there is no natting between the two vlans.

Re: Airwave between wired and wireless vlans

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the reply!

I`ve already made sure there is no NAT between the wired and the wireless vlans. And there is no ip nat inside the wireless vlan interface. The wired vlan is tagged all the way to the controller and was created on the controller too. There is no IP address on the wired vlan in the controller ( I also tried to assign an IP address, but made no difference!). I don´t understand why it is not working.

Thanks again.

 

Heraldo.
