Using the wcs 4402 controllers. we can enable multicast under the general properties which affects all APs connected to it. Is there a way to have multicast support for just a few APs? We have some mac users that want to run "bonjour" (formerly rendevous) and the app relies on multicast being enabled, however, it puts an extra load on the wireless network
Thanks for the info. However, 90% of the users never leave the subnet/vlan to communicate to each other. Many are even on the same APs.
We have 80 cisco 1020 aps, 4 cisco 4400 controllers using lwapp in L2 mode. The install is in a building approximately 880,000 sq ft and the wireless coverage (including the perimeter) is over 1 million sq ft.
(also have 4 vivato panels for large exihibit areas - which will soon be replaced with 1020 AP units -- no comments please).
The current client is using 1 ssid for all their guests and many of them are macs which use apps such as bonjour which is a multicast IM client to find each other & communicate.
