Apple Airplay between zones

Have anyone try to get apple airplay to work between firewall zones?

there's an application available to support apple-airplay accross the firewall, but it depends on rtcp and rtp-base, so you may need to allow these as well for airplay to properly work


it also implicitly uses rtsp and web-browsing so if you have an explicit drop rule above the airplay rule that drops one of these applications, it may be blocking your airplay connections as well

Does anyone have any additional information on this? I've read that some people have had success with this but I haven't been able to figure out how to get mDNS working across zones / VLANs.


Multicast routing won't let be setup as an RP because that address is not supposed to be routable.. Is there another way to accomplish this?


I refuse to believe my Meraki MX can do something easily (Bonjour forwarding) that my PA cannot.
