mDNS reply reading via Basic driver.

Artem Kuteynikov 1 year ago in Devices / Basic updated 1 year ago 2

Hello,

a device publishes its services as mDNS message/reply, is there a chance to fetch data from such message?

As far as i can see mDNS utilizes UDP, but Basic driver configured as: Udp, Device_ip_address, src_port_number (as remote port), dst_port_number (as local port), ASCII, text, won`t do any good. Sniffer shows that device posts requests/replies which contain data i need though.

Thanks.

Hello,

try using the following for additional information: 

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc6762

But unfortunately we don't think it will be possible to parse out the data you require as mDNS response does not use encoding such as ASCII, UTF8...

Best regards.

Hello,

Thank you.

That`s not a big problem. And regarding Sonoff devices i`m dealing with, i don`t think it worth the effort.
