I picked up used ap120 and been playing around with it.  Have it running in autonomous mode.  Ever since I've had it up, I've noticed that my LG TV periodically displays a pairing key pop-up and I think it's because of the bonjour-service on the AP.  Is there any way to disable the service or to implement a filter to not hit the TV?

You can edit the network policy itself and disable the bonjour gateway (configuration -> network).

Thanks Hans, but I do not have access to HiveManager.  I'm working exclusively through the CLI.  Are there CLI commands that will disable Bonjour?

How is possible to disable for all APs with typing this command for each Access Point?

If you want to have basic management of the access points you could create a Connect NG instance and use that.  Connect NG instances don't incur a support charge.

Which version of HiveOS are you using on this AP?

Mike Kouri commented that:

"As of HiveOS 6.2, the Bonjour Gateway is essentially an mDNS broadcast helper. Earlier versions were stateful proxies, but there were operational and performance issues, so we changed it. We now ONLY act as an intra-VLAN mDNS broadcast helper. We do not proxy the services advertised via mDNS."

This means that HiveOS 6.2r1 on an AP120 shouldn't be doing anything that could cause what you see.

Nick, that's good info... Currently running 5.1r5.  since disabling the bonjour-gateway on the AP, the LG HDTV is no longer displaying the pairing key.   Looks like LG uses bonjour to enable remote functionality from a mobile device, and every time the AP went into discovery mode would cause the HDTV to think something was trying to connect.
