    Thank you for that post, and for the Clue!

    I also had to disable 'IGMP Snooping' on my Unifi controller to get my wife's PC to talk to her Kodak Verite printer. Thanks to Wireshark for telling me what was going on.
    I also disabled 'Block LAN to WLAN Multicast and Broadcast Data' as well.

    Doing that also fixed our Sonos devices, and also fixed air print. All of that had stopped working when I replaced our Google WiFi with Unifi access ports.

    Thank you again for the Clue!

    Curious, was the "Block LAN to WLAN multicast" default on or added by you?

    This setup is working for me with Unifi Switches and AP's to the FWG in router mode. I can Airplay from my Main Lan to the Sonos Speakers on my IoT Vlan. But I can not get the Sonos iOS or Win10 app to work outside of the IoT Vlan. Anyone know if this is an issue with SSDP not being able to traverse networks without some sort of firewall rule?

    And to answer the Q above for me the "Block Lan to WLAN multicast" was unchecked by default on my unifi controller.

    I must be doing something wrong. I moved an Ethernet device to a vlan on my Unifi switch and changed the settings as above. But homekit is definitely not happy and I can’t see the homekit devices from the LAN.

    edit:

    More information about my specific use case: the device in question is now on a VLAN. It is a homekit bridge (security system). On the LAN are my homekit hubs.

    My config: 

    Firewalla Gold (router mode)  > UI Controller (on a NAS, for wifi only) one UI switch and one older Netgear managed switch)

    Do I have to open any ports between the VLANs?

    Any suggestions? @bob? @christopher?

    Anyone know if this setting is relevant and what it should be set to? 

    Multicast Enhancement  (ON/OFF) Enable multicast enhancement (IGMPv3)
