4:59 PM - Multicast DNS

Over the last two days, I've updated mDNSResponder in MidnightBSD to 258.14.  I've also added a new nsswitch module (nss_mdns) for resolving mdns entries.

To enable this, you would need to be on current, have mDNSResponder enabled, and then add mdns to the hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf

hosts: files mdns dns

To enable mDNSResponder, add the following to /etc/rc.conf


It might be necessary to implement additional routines in nss_mdns, but at this point I'm able to ping hosts and run basic programs like ssh while connecting to hosts on my local network.
