Aruba OS 6.4 and Google Chromecast

Hi,

 

We've just updated our 3400 controller to OS 6.4 but can not get Chromecast to work. Both the laptop and Chromecast are on the same subnet. Chromecast is enabled in Airgroup. 

 

Are there any other changes that need to be made for Chromecasts to function properly?

 

Thanks.

Re: Aruba OS 6.4 and Google Chromecast

Are you trying to use a Chromecast-enabled application like YouTube or the Google Cast plugin inside of Chrome?

 

The Google Cast plugin has a limitation on Windows where it will not discover teh Chromecast unless you are connected to the same SSID even though it can actually L2 discover it.

Hello

I am using a MacBook running 10.9.2, the Chrome browser, with the plugin, and with the Chrome app.

No it was not but 6.4 is supposed to add compatibility for Chromecast as well as DLNA devices.

Yes, SSDP support was added in 6.4

 

Can you run:

 

#show airgroup servers dlna

 

Do you see the Chromecast?
