Dear Bonjour Gateway users,

Aerohive has just released a new version of its Free Bonjour Gateway software. This version fixes known problems related to iOS devices.

Bug 20310: iOS Devices (iPads, iPhones) could discover Bonjour Services via the Gateway but could not AirPrint. In contrast, other Apple devices such as MacBook laptops were able to AirPrint. Bonjour packets detected from iOS devices included a different subtype that is now recognized.

Bug 25054: Users were able to discover and transmit services across VLANS, including iTunes sharing on MacBooks, but not when using iOS devices. The services did not appear in iTunes as a shared source. Certain rebroadcasts have now been corrected for iTunes sharing.

To install the new Bonjour Gateway version:

Step 1. Login to your HiveManager, go to Monitor --> Bonjour Gateways --> Update --> Select “Upload and Activate HiveOS Software”

Step 2. Select the new “AH-HiveOS-VA-5.1r2a” image file.

Step 3. Push the image to your existing Bonjour Gateway instances.

Aerohive thanks you for your patience and hope that the image is useful in your deployments.

If you have questions about the Free Bonjour product or would like to discuss the solution, please feel free to do so here.
