Re: mDNS in the new CP firmware
Ah! I never noticed the magnifying glass. It never really registered as a place that would show the hostnames it found. Modally, I guess I expected them to be listed in a combox UI widget for the Hostname/IP field.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
The service discovery portion should be easy to implement. You should define a unique name for your protocol and publish SRV records for it, for both UDP and TCP, as well as a record for the HTTP service. This would let you change ports and whatnot independently of any client having to keep track of that specific knowledge.
Either way, this is far far better than trying to locate CPs by ping sweeping the subnet, and mDNS can be reflected across subnets as well, so the discovery can extend beyond them if the site does that.
