AirPlay and AppleTV unavailable indefinitely

Update 4 Jan 2016: AirPlay and AppleTV communication is now working.

Note that we cannot guarantee that AirPlay will continue to work. The AirPlay protocol is designed for small home networks, not the large, enterprise network at EMU. AirPlay problems are difficult to resolve at best and may prove unresolvable in the future.

Compatibility of AirPlay and AppleTV communication protocols with our network is marginal and we have always experienced varying degrees of problems supporting them.  As of now they are not working and we do not have a timetable for restoring them.  Anyone expecting to use them should prepare for alternative means of projecting their screen, such as a direct cable connection.

If you are unable to find a workaround for your particular situation, please call the Helpdesk to discuss at 540-432-4557 (x4557 on the Harrisonburg campus.)
