How to - chromecast in RED-GREEN-BLUE config?

I’m happy IPFire user. :slight_smile:
I just got a chromecast device but I have a some difficulty getting it to work in my home network.
My ipfire router is configured with RED-GREEN-BLUE interfaces and I want to make it possible to cast from my phone (connected to WIFI) to my TV (connected to ehternet).
I know it works when everything is connected to the WIFI. :slight_smile:
Any information will be very useful to me. Thank you in advance for your help.

I assume your phone connects to blue and your TV connects to green.
You need a rule to allow blue->green. See link below.

Hi Paul,
Thank you for the quick reply. I tried that few days ago but no success. This is the state of my firewall:


As I know IPFire don’t allow multicast broadcast packages between the two networks so any ideas will be highly appreciated.

I don’t know chromecast but this works very well for Apple iPhones, Apple TV, Mac.

My iPhone is in BLUE and my Apple TV is in GREEN.

EDIT: you will need the firewall rule also. And it can be more restrictive.

Thank you, Jon.
I will try this and report here.

Thank you very much, Jon. Just installed mdns and enabled the traffic between the networks and everything works now.

You may want to make your firewall rule more restrictive. Maybe something like this:

Yes. I did it very restrictive.
