    This is a local broadcast process only.

    So in order to get it to cross vlans you would need to setup multicast to get the messages to flood between the associated vlans so the broad messages would be seen.

    Hi Steve,
    I did the multicast setup already:

    protocols {
    ospf {
    area 0.0.0.0 {
    interface irb.40;
    interface ge-0/0/0.0;
    }
    }
    pim {
    rp {
    local {
    address 172.16.0.1;
    }
    static {
    address 172.16.0.1 {
    group-ranges {
    224.0.0.0/4;
    224.0.1.1/32;
    224.0.1.2/32;
    224.0.1.3/32;
    224.0.1.4/32;
    224.0.1.5/32;
    224.0.1.6/32;
    224.0.1.7/32;
    224.0.1.8/32;
    224.0.1.9/32;
    224.100.100.100/32;
    239.0.0.0/32;
    239.255.255.250/32;
    }
    }
    }
    }
    interface irb.40 {
    mode sparse;
    }
    }
    l2-learning {
    global-mode switching;
    }
    rstp {
    interface all;
    }
    }

    but thats not enough obviously. What do I have to do exactly ? Do have an example config maybe ?
    thx i. a. 

    Max

    I guess your config is right and Bonjour traffic should be multicasted properly (mdns for example).
    The problem is that Airplay was not conceived to be multi-hop. You can't just multicast screen display. You need to have a Bonjour gateway that will copy the traffic from one vlan to another.
