Re: mDNS in the new CP firmware

Hi Dale,

Thanks for noticing.  FWIW, APCC can "find" CP4s and CP5's.  See below.  If UDP or TCP is checked, you can click the magnifying glass, which will perform auto-discovery.  A List of reachable AP hosts will be displayed, click on the one you want, and click "Select".  There's a checkbox to tell it to use the IP address.  Leaving this unchecked will make it use the hostname. There are updates to the CP4 and CP5 manuals that will described this in more detail.  Admittedly, auto-discovery is not the same as service discovery.  For example, APCC needs to know the port numbers.  However, it accomplishes a similar purpose for the usage domain you describe.

Cheers,
Mike
