Bluesound Network and VLANS




  • Official comment

    Hi Mark

    Apps on one network and Players on another (VLAN or otherwise) will never work as mDNS (multicast) is not routable by design, but many a CCNA have tried. If any have been successful we have not heard the magic port mix yet - but looking forward if anyone does figure it out.

    Without The Internet, you are correct, no Music Services such as Spotify or TIDAL, no software update notifications AND if you have VAULT, no automatic metadata identification and additions when ripping a CD...    ...but it does work. If you are closing the Internet because you are concerned about security, well we are too and lock down your Players as best we can on that front.

    Ok thanks, this is what I had heard.  I'll put everything on one for now.
