Unifi Network - Setup Chromecast between VLANs
Fortunately, it is nowadays very easy to use the Chromecast within different networks/vlans. All you have to do is make a few settings within the Unifi Network Application.
I replaced my old Unifi Security Gateway (USG) with a Unifi Dream Machine Pro (UDM-Pro) and made the choice to build everything from scratch and not migrate the settings. So all settings are set by default and from there I make the necessary adjustments.
In my case I have configured the following networks:
IOT-VLAN(with a Nvidia Shield and a Chromecast Ultra)
CLIENT-VLAN(with devices that can cast)
You can read more about setting up my vlans here.
Enable Multicast DNS
As a first step I have enabled Multicast DNS for the above mentioned networks.
- Go to
- Scroll to
Global Network Settingsand select the networks after
Multicast DNS. In my case:
Setup WiFi Multicast Management
I have created a WiFi network for both my IOT-VLAN and the CLIENT-VLAN network and set up Multicast Management for each wifi network.
- Go to
- From the list at the top, open the WiFi network settings by clicking on the network
- Scroll down to
Advanced Configurationand click
- For IOT-VLAN I also enabled
Multicast and Broadcast Controland added the MAC address of my wireless Chromecast Ultra
