    Setup mDNS for device discovery

    poseid

      Hello,

       

      I am experimenting with mDNS to advertise a Galileo on the local network.

       

      However, I have some troubles doing this.

       

      First, I advertise the Galileo with:

       

        $ dns-sd -R '444' _tessel._tcp local 22

       

      When I then browse for the Galileo from another machine (via Wlan0 connected to same router):

       

          $ dns-sd -B _tessel._tcp

       

      There is no device.

       

      Now, exploring why this problem might occur, I checked the hostname configuration on the Galileo.

       

      root@galileo:~# hostname -f

      galileo

       

      So, there is a missing .local

       

      But also the difference in /etc/resolv.conf might be interesting

       

      root@galileo:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf

      # Generated by Connection Manager

      nameserver 127.0.0.1

      nameserver ::1

       

      Vs on the other machine in the network:

       

      domain Speedport_W723_V_Typ_A_1_01_011

      nameserver 192.168.2.1

      nameserver 192.168.2.1

      nameserver fe80::1

       

      How could I get mdns running?
