Apple Airplay and Meru

GiraffeIT.com have found out that Meru and Apples airplay systems dont always play well together. Specifically, the configuration out of the box doesnt work at all.

We have found the following settings of use :

 

Log into the GUI
Click on the “Configuration” Tab
Click on “System Settings” under “Devices”
Click on “UDP Broadcast Up”
Click “Add”
Enter port number “5297″ click OK
Repeat to enter in port numbers “5298″ and “5353″
Click on “UDP Broadcast Down”
Click “Add”
Enter port number “5297″ click OK
Repeat to enter in port numbers “5298″ and “5353″
Click on the “Configuration” Tab
Click on “ESS” under “Wireless”
