Can't get iTunes sync over wifi to work with iOS devices

[ Edited ]

Hello,

3400 controller AOS 6.4.3.1, Aruba MAS 7.4.0.3, Campus AP-225, iTunes library connected wired in the mas and a seperate library connected via wifi. Using 802.1x ssid on all devices (also tried PSK for giggles). Everything (osx clients/itunes servers, iOS devices, switch, and controller) is on a single vlan (10) and using a 10.1/16 network.

 

I can not get any iOS device to connect/sync to any itunes library. Airgroup seems to be working (see snip)...

 

Is this expected behaviour (i hope not), what am I missing?

 

Thanks...

Re: Can't get iTunes sync over wifi to work with iOS devices

You either need to either: trunk your wired VLANs to the controller, use the
multicast aggregation feature in AOS 6.4.3, or configure a tunnel between
the switch and the controller to route mDNS packets to the controller.

Re: Can't get iTunes sync over wifi to work with iOS devices

Tim, Thanks for the input, I forgot to mention in my setup, there is only 1 vlan across the controller, mas, ap, and macs running itunes.

 

I would expect it to work taking the switch ou tof the equation with a wireless osx itunes library and a wireless ios device on the same vlan. however, no joy.

Do you see the services advertised in the AirGroup server table?

Yes, and in fact the appletvs can pull media from itunes, it's purely ios wifi sync.

As a curiostiy, and for my own sanity, i set up a linksys ap and joined a phone and the mac pro from the earlier post to the linksys wifi network that is attached to vlan 10. iTunes wifi sync works as expected.

 

So I disconnected the Mac Pro from the linksys wireless network and put it back on the MAS with the iphone still connected to the rogue linksys ap. Wifi sync still works.

 

Then i swapped them around, mac pro back on the linksys ap, iphone on the aruba ap, no sync.

 

Seems to me that i’ve narrowed down the problem to being related to only the Aruba WLAN, i’ve tried “airplay disable” with no luck, and reenabled.

 

Airgroup seems to have itunes service correctly configured, vlan 10 is where everything is living.

 

If anyone can verify that itunes wifi sync does in fact work on their aruba wlan and send me a config export i'd be grateful so i could compare.airgroup services.jpg

Re: Can't get iTunes sync over wifi to work with iOS devices

James.Vaught,

 

Are you allowing the ports necessary for Itunes Sync in the user roles for the wireless devices?  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204089  "iTunes uses TCP ports 123 and 3689 as well as UDP ports 123 and 5353. If iTunes can’t communicate on port 3689, iTunes will not be able to sync over Wi-Fi. "

 

Airgroup only provides two things:

- Discovery of MDNS and DLNA devices across subnets

- Discovery of MDNS and DLNA devices when "Broadcast Filter All" is enabled.

 

If the port(s) necessary for your MDNS and DLNA service are not being permitted, your devices will not be able to communicate.  Please type "show datapath session table <ip address of device>" while doing the discovery to ensure the necessary ports are not being blocked.  If nothing is being blocked and you see the ports for the application being permitted, please make sure you only have "broadcast filter arp" and not "broadcast filter on" to make the wlan exactly like the linksys.

Re: Can't get iTunes sync over wifi to work with iOS devices

I’ve moved this situation to my lab for greater flexibility by adding a controller in as a local, then moving it to the lab and making it a master so it has the same configs.

 

Colin,

Thanks for the advice, but i'm pretty sure thats not it...

My wlan clients get put in the authenticated role, which has an “any any any” permission assigned to it, my phone is connected to the dot1x vap, has any any any permissions, and i've been using "broadcast filter arp" not "broadcast filter all". No luck. Please see snips below...

Re: Can't get iTunes sync over wifi to work with iOS devices

james.vaught,

 

If

 

- you Do not have drop broadcast and multicast enabled

- all your clients are on the same VLAN

 

There is no advantage to you using airgroup and you should disable it.
