Hello is it possible to route 126.96.36.199 that multicast to another interface
at the moment we are using this for apple mobile printing. so the mobile print server is on Port4 and the WLAN iPhones on Port6 (WLAN)
PrintServer 192.168.12.8 (LAN Port4)
WLAN Device: 192.168.13.78 (WLAN Port6, PoE Switch connected the Sophos AP55C)
I try to establish the communication between the wlan devices and the print server for air print.
Did you ever get this working? I'm looking to do the same exact thing.
Sophos XG guides for home users: https://shred086.wordpress.com/
in my point of view, this should work.
Did you already dump the MDNS Traffic?
Maybe the logviewer shows the drop wrong - so tcpdump -ni any port 5353 -s0 -b -w /tmp/dump.pcap
and download the dump via pSCP.

I’ve spent the past few days researching and testing things out and it doesn’t appear Multicast Forwarding will work with forwarding mDNS from one subnet to another. The mDNS IP 188.8.131.52 is a part of the reserved 184.108.40.206/24 Local Network Control Block which cannot be routed. I don’t think Sophos XG has this capability and you would have to setup a separate device that sits on both subnets running an mDNS reflector. Some of the other firewalls like pfSense or OPNsense have an Avahi plug-in that will act as a mDNS reflector.
AFAIK, Sophos XG cannot do mDNS. The only thing they've recommended is running mDNS "on a separate server". Well, that's a deal-breaker for me. The inability for Sophos XG to run Avahi/Bonjour/mDNS/whatever is the only reason I'm having to run OPNsense instead :(
I am trying to do exactly the same thing and running into the same results. :(
It would be nice if Sophos XG Firewall supported mDNS feature.
Well that should end my time with short time with XG also I guess. Hard to believe in 2020 mDNS between vlans is not a thing. People have a lot of iOS devices, at home and in businesses. Not being able to print to air printers is an issue. Not wanting IOT devices running free is important.
in v18 of XG have you investigated the routing tab and if so with what results?
I was going by feedback I've seen around. I'll keep going on with it if you're saying you know it works.
I haven't tried the settings, but was suggesting them because none else has. None of my IoT devices broadcast and I use IP addressing for the printers in a mainly MAC environment.
Ah damn, I got excited there for a minute, thought maybe it was changed in v18. I'll try some of the tricks that seemed to make it work under Unifi equipment, but based on people with more experience than me configuring this that can't do it... we'll see I guess.
