    What is Zeroconf?

    Zeroconf (Zero Configuration) simplifies network configuration. It takes care of IP allocation for network devices so the user doesn't have to set this up manually. Zeroconf can be used even when DHCP isn't working correctly. With manual set up or with DHCP, two network devices can inadvertently...

    About Printing on FreeBSD

    Postscript (PS) and PCL (Printer Command Language) are printer languages known as Page Description Languages (PDLs) supported by the majority of printers for interpreting and printing jobs.

    net/samba48 -> samba410 and ZEROCONF?

    I've been moving machines from Samba 4.8 -> 4.10, and noticed you can no longer disable both AVAHI and MDNSRESPONDER. Is there a reason (e.g. changes upstream) we need one of these now? It pulls in a bunch of ports from X11 that I'd rather not have on these headless servers. If we're stuck...

    Avahi/mDNS not working in shared IP jails

    I've been running six VNET-enabled jails via iocage that I wanted to revert to shared IP, as I've had some system crashes that I suspect are related to VNET issues. (The iocage documentation describes VNET as experimental and prone to causing instability.) After making the switch, the three...

    How to install and configure mDNSResponder

    Wasn't able to find much info on configuring mDNSResponder. Most posts talk about using Avahi or Netatalk. I was using Avahi on FreeBSD 11 and recently clean installed FreeBSD 12-Release and read somewhere that mDNSResponder is more lightweight (but don't quote me on that :p). Anyhow, I was...

    mDNSResponder Issue with two network interfaces

    I do have two network interfaces on my server ( one for "public" and one as "admin" network only ). The setup worked fine with net/mDNSResponder and net/netatalk3 . I configured the two networks in /usr/local/etc/afp.conf by restricting the netatalk to listen and response only to the public...

    Trouble with avahi-0.6.31

    I'm working a fresh install from ports of FreeBSD 10.2 onto a Lenovo T420. I'm getting a lot of avahi errors about an unexpected parenthesis. Did a freebsd-update and portsnap checks. Since avahi is coming up a lot, my install's stopping in several of the contemporary ports like netbeans...

    CUPS 1.7.2 Broken if Avahi Disabled

    Hello, The print/cups port will not build using version 1.7.2 without avahi enabled. It seems that this is a documented bug that has been fixed in the development branch of cups via a patch. It seems that there is no maintainer for the cups port, so I am not sure where else to post this. See...
