MDNS client

Postby slaff » Mon May 25, 2015 4:48 am

Is it possible to create a mDNS client on the ESP8266? I want to be able to read information about advertised services like MQTT that are already provided from other devices on the network.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

mDNS client is not supported now, but we are working on it. It will be supported in the future.

Thanks for your interest in ESP8266 !

i wrote some Arduino code to do exactly this so i could discover the Mosquitto Brokers on my network without having to configure the ESP8266
here:
https://github.com/mrdunk/esp8266_mdns

it's written in fairly generic C++ style so the section that de-codes the mDNS packets could easily be ported to another language.

hope it helps someone,
dunk.

Hello,

I am also interested to use mDNS client functionality on the esp8266. Any news on when it will be available?

BR,
