SONOS Move & wifi lan isolation

SONOS Move & wifi lan isolation

I've got a bunch of Sonos equipment in my house, and just added some WiFi only Moves.


I also have a secure and IOT wifi networks; all of the Sonos and other junk connect to the IOT side of things.


The trouble I was seeing was I could play to the house except for the moves, or I could play to one Move - at a time. If I started the music streaming on a Move, I couldn't add the other, and if I started in the house, I couldn't add the Move. It just wouldn't play. It would appear to be part of the group, but no noise would come out.


In talking to Sonos support, they had me adjust the rule (boxed in red) at the bottom of the screen shot - allow any any to the local lan. and that fixes things. But it kind of defeats the purpose of a separate IOT network, doesn't it?


So I went searching for the ports that the Sonos products use, and that resulted in the rules (boxed in green) to see if things would work. When I disabled the red rule, problem returned; nothing in the green boxes fixes anything (I first tried destination before trying Any) makes it work. 


Is there any rule I can insert that will give me peace of mind and let me still play all the Sonos devices together?

Kind of a big deal

I dont have sonos.

But i use one vlan for normal home wifi.


And another vlan for iot. In this vlan i only allow iot to talk to iot  and internet.


Asuming you have a mx that uses statefull rules you could  also do something like allow home to iot. And deny iot  to home.
