Aruba OS and Chromecast

Hello Everyone, 


I've been having some issues connecting to ChromeCast devices via various Access Points which are connected to an Aruba Controller. 


Here's some additional information.


Toshiba TV ChromeCast Built-In

Aruba Cloud Services Controller

We also have a SonicWall Firewall/Router device at the head of the Network. 


So from an Android Device utilizing the Google Home setup process when we get to the point were the Android connects the TV to the Wi-Fi network it is thereafter unable to communicate. 

We have attempted the following: 


Turning On Everything in AirGroup

Turning Off the "Enable Suppress ARP" setting 

Drop Broadcast and Unknown Multicast is currently Disabled

Convert Broadcast ARP requests to Unicast is currently Disabled

BC/MC Rate Optimazation is currently Disabled 

802.11K and 802.11R both appear to be set as their Default settings 


Attempted to run show airgroup blocked-service-id (see below)


(Aruba7005) # show airgroup blocked-service-id

AirGroup Blocked Service IDs
Origin Service ID #response-hits
------ ---------- -------------- _companion-link._tcp 4 _ptService._tcp 4
Num Blocked Service-ID:2


I added these two to a test AirGroup settings and attempted the setup again nothing worked.

Anything you all can do to assist would be appreciated! 

If needed I can provide a running config.
