Routing Apple Bonjour



  • Good Day guys,
    Lately we have replaced our Cisco firewall with Pfsense Firewall hardware.
    Everything works fine as expected .
    The configuration is as following.
    VLAN 2,3,4,5,6,7,8
    Users are receiving their correct IP.
    However now the previously printers that were added to the machines using bonjour services are offline and we can't print.

    When I connect to the printers using their IP its works.
    My questions is how can I allow bonjour between the VLANS ?
    Firewall rules are simple allow every to every on each VLANS and LAN interface.

    Thank you

    Look at the avahi package.

    Thank you for your answer.
    Is there is a way of doing with UDP ports without need to install any package ?
    Like having the printers users on the same subnet would get AirPrint working ?
    Thank you

    Bonjour is multicast DNS (mDNS). It needs to be forwarded between network segments by something.
