Cisco WLC with Bonjor services - MSE 3310 compatibility

Hi All,

We have a Cisco WLC 5508 currently running on code 7.2. We have Cisco MSE 3310 appliance (which is EoS & EoS) and it is running on code 7.2 as well.

Now, we want to implement Bonjor Gateway services to support Apple Services such as Apple TV, Apple Printer etc.

My understanding is that in order to deploy Bonjour gateway the controller needs to be at least on version 7.4.

I can upgrade the Controller Code, but I need to know the compatibility between Cisco WLC code 7.4 (7.4.100.0) with Cisco MSE 3310 code (7.3.101.0, as it the highest code available). MSE 3310 appliance compatibility with WLC Code 7.4 ?

I checked the Cisco Software Compatibility Matrix, and it's not clear at all.

Thanks and Regards,

CJ

Hi,

MSE with 7.3.101.version is compatible with 7.3.101.0 of WLC.

7.4 on wlc will not be compatible with mse 7.3 version.

If you really want to keep everything compatible, you might want to look at another route, like using Avahi as an mDNS gateway.  Take a look at this document... there are other mDNS gateways out there which can work, but this doc is strictly for the Avahi:
