I'm looking to configure the Avahi daemon in reflector mode (which I have working) to reflect only certain Airplay targets to the other networks. Anyone have a solution for this?


If anyone is looking for an answer for this still, here's a way to forward Airplay and other types of Zeroconf traffic between two Vlans:

In the avahi-daemon.conf, make sure the following is inserted:


Next add the following (customizing your Vlans of course):


I used two network cards to then bridge the vlans, others have said this could be done with a single card and an allow vlan x-x or allow vlan x, x on the switchport.
