CONFIG_MDNS_RESPONDER

mDNS responder

Type: bool

Help

This option enables the mDNS responder support for Zephyr. It will listen well-known address ff02::fb and 224.0.0.251. Currently this only returns IP address information. You must set CONFIG_NET_HOSTNAME to some meaningful value and then mDNS will start to respond to <hostname>.local mDNS queries. See RFC 6762 for more details about mDNS.

Direct dependencies

NET_HOSTNAME_ENABLE && NETWORKING

(Includes any dependencies from ifs and menus.)

Defaults
