  • 1.  Disable peer blocking on 205H

    Posted Jan 11, 2016 01:19 PM

    I just started using my Aruba 205H AP and P2P gaming seems not to work anymore as well as wireless printing. I've checked all settings on the 205 and can't find any settings that enable/disable peer-peer communication. Does the 205H by default block P2P apps/communication? If so, how do I disable it?

    On the SSID, make sure broadcast filtering is off.  Try that.

    Thank you. I changed it from ARP to Disabled, but still no success.

    Do you have firewall policies assigned to users?  Please disable that.

    No. I haven't created any firewall rules nor did they previously exist.

    Are the devices on the same subnet?  Can they ping each other?  publish your SSID configuration, because I am just guessing based on what you tell me.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that no I cannot ping other clients on the same subnet. The clients are not firewalled. Here are some dumps that I think may help:

    It is curious that you cannot ping those devices when on the same VLAN.  Something is happening, here....

    I agree. With my previous AP (Cisco 3700) AP there were no issues. The issue only happens with the 205. When I get the time I will attach the AP to a hub an run Wireshark to follow the packets.

    My sincere apologies. I made 2 mistakes in my last test:

     

    1. I had configured the wireless printer for another SSID (old Cisco access point) in order to print and neglected to configure it back for the Broadcast filtering test.

     

    2. I pinged a client that had dropped off the network but was still in the association table.

     

    I had just realzed the first mistake today so I ran both tests again it its working. Many thanks to you!!!!!!!
