Usually .local names are resolved using mDNS – the Linux servers probably run Avahi, and for Windows there is Apple's own Bonjour. An older version of Bonjour (v2.0) is available under the name of Bonjour Print Services. The latest version (v3) cannot be officially downloaded separately, but only as part of iTunes – although it is fairly easy to ...

When ssh is advertised via bonjour, you can ssh to the linux machine via "ssh hostname". No client side configuration is required is the server changes IP Address, or is using a non-standard port. Bounjour advertised ssh servers show up automatically in OSX Terminal's File->New Remote Connection menu. In iTerm, the menu is Bookmarks -> Bonjour, or via Right ...

Using that linked package, I opened up BonjourPSSetup.exe in WinRAR and was able to extract Bonjour.msi from it (you could use Bonjour64.msi on 64-bit I guess). It's then possible to install from Bonjour.msi - I haven't fully tested it through to completion myself but hopefully that would be a way for you to install the Bonjour Service without the Bonjour ...

It looks like the router isn't handling multicast (which is what Bonjour uses) correctly. There's a possible fix mentioned here although it might not work with your particular modem. Anyway, multicast bridging is the feature you want, although it's hard to determine if a router supports it without actually testing it. If you are happy running separate ...

Add it to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (be sure to open as Administrator so you have access to write to that file) 127.0.0.1 prosseek.local then run ipconfig /flushdns and you should be able to ping prosseek.local Note: if chrome still ignores the hostname just add a trailing forward slash, e.g. prosseek.local/ which will bypass the ...

The PECL has a Zeroconf extension you could try out. Zeroconf/mDNS is not specific to Java. However, I would recommend using static IP addresses with a known configuration rather than having the additional dependency of Zeroconf.

Apache has an Avahi/mDNS plugin called dnssd that can help you with this.

I think that you should take a step back and fix the real problem. If you have several servers, each of which need to find each other, then you should assign them static IPs. That is exactly the problem that setting a server to have a static IP is designed to fix, after all.

Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start search box and hit Enter. Locate Network adapters and expand it. Select the wireless connection, right-click and select Properties. Go to the Driver tab and click Uninstall.

I see that you don't want Windows 7 to manage your Netgear wireless adapter but rather want the Netgear's utility to manage it. The wireless adapter in Windows 7 is managed by the service WLAN Auto Config service (wlansvc). You can tell Windows 7 to not to manage this by running the command: netsh wlan set autoconfig enabled=no ...

Yes, ideally, you run an IETF ZeroConf implementation (Avahi, Apple Bonjour, etc.) on each device, and each device responds to service discovery requests and hostname-to-IP-address resolution requests itself. Avahi implements IETF ZeroConf networking (which Apple calls "Bonjour"). This is basically a cluster of 3 technologies: IPv4 link-local addressing ...

Normally it should, according to this IETF draft. However, if for some reason any other device has claimed that address in the meantime, the device must choose a different address. The automatic address generation needs some randomness, to avoid having all devices choosing the same address (or sequence of addresses). Therefore the mechanism needs a random ...

I can report that my Linksys WRT54G without custom (OpenWRT) firmware supports the bridged multi-cast traffic just fine. Wifi printing to a wired HP printer with Bonjour/Zeroconf works. However in my case, the firmware on the HP 2600n had to be patch to the latest version to get this working correctly, so it might not be your router at fault.

I found a tip on a D-Link forum for my DIR-655 related to Bonjour and mulitcast. The part that made my bonjour iPhone apps able to connect to my home network was this setting: on the Advanced tab, Advanced Network settings, there is a check box for Enable Multicast Streams. Tick this and reboot the router.

mDNS (aka zeroconf, Rendezvous, and Bonjour) is a way for devices to advertise the services they have on the network. A computer still needs to support that service (with the appropriate drivers) in order for them to use the service. For instance, if you had Macs on the network, they would see the HP 2300dtn on the network and allow you to select it as a ...

It is a function of Bonjour. You can get Windows PCs to resolve .local names by either installing Itunes (ick) or by installing the Bounjour Print Service. Most *nix devices can be persuaded to broadcast .local mDNS names using Avahi. Though Avahi can be a right pain to get working. You may be able to enable either Zero-Conf, mDNS, or DNS-SD in the ...
