Hi

I am using a Netgear R7000 with DD-WRT as a WAP / Switch. pfSense is plugged into the WAN port and is used as my router.

I am trying to get Apple Homekit to work across different VLANs and it is currently not because the mDNS protocol it uses cannot get from one VLAN to the other currently.

I have installed Avahi on the pfSense but I believe I need to somehow get the mDNS broadcasts to 224.0.0.251 to go up to the pfSense box to route instead of just broadcasting locally on DDWRT.

However, I am not sure what the correct process to achieve this would be. Is it as simple as creating an iptables rule on DDWRT to forward the broadcast packets up to pfSense? I couldn't seem to get this to work when I tried.

Thanks in advance
