Port requirements for HomeKit

Port requirements for HomeKit


I’m having trouble connecting to HomeKit devices on another VLAN.

I have a HomePod and an iPhone on the main VLAN and on the IoT (homekit control) devices on the IoT VLAN.

We have enabled Avahi between the two VLANs and the following firewall rules are in effect:

– allow main -> iot / internet (all ports / ip addresses)

– iot allow -> internet (all ports / ip addresses)

– Enable iot -> main / iot on udp port 5353 for mDNS.

 & # x20AC; & # x2122;

Am I missing something else? Are there any other requirements for HomeKit devices to be connected from HomePod / iPhone?
