Bluesound Network and VLANS




  • Official comment

    Hi Anton

    This is not a limitation of Bluesound or BluOS Players, it is a limitation of the mDNS protocol and a problem with a number of IoT Appliances. IF your router and switch VLANs allow for mDNS routing you should be okay. Make sure your network is setup properly to accommodate this.

    Anton --- if you're going to be using mdns or bonjour/ multicasting on the local network, that protocol is going to use as the broadcast address and port 5353 to communicate between nodes.


    If you have any kind of software firewalling on your computers, see if they can allow bonjour/ mdns and that should take care of allowing communication across the network.
