We have a requirement for our WGB attached clients to receive regular broadcasts across the mesh. Based on my current configuration this doesn't appear to be working. I have no idea why this isn't working.
My mesh is based around 1552E Mesh Access Points, and a 5508 Controller running 220.127.116.11 software
The Work Group Bridges are Autonomous Cisco 1261 APs running 12.4(25d)JA1, attached to a Moxa L2 switch
To complicate matters, the AP and switch are in a network management VLAN (the same as the controller management interface), and the client device is in a seperate VLAN.
There are no problems with unicast traffic to and from the client device. It is registered correctly on the controller against the right VLAN / controller interface. I know the broadcasts are present in the VLAN on the LAN side, however they are not received by the client device.
I have enabled Ethernet Broadcast on the controller, in unicast mode (all multicast modes are default)
I have tried the Work group bridges in both infrastructure-client and normal client mode
Can anyone suggest any tests I can confirm to try and track the problem to either the controller or the WGB?
