MDNS in Erlang
Erlang Shell
branch: master

Erlang MDNS

Erlang MDNS dl -- 2012.


Erlang MDNS is an implementation of the MDNS discovery protocol written in Erlang. The current implementation is sufficient for two or more Erlang nodes to self discover and form a network.

Quick Start

Start a MDNS browser (at least on Mac OS X, other OS check local documentation for similar) using:

(mdns home)/

In a separate terminal start the server:

(mdns home)/

You should see a service type of _erlang._tcp being advertised in the MDNS browser. Quitting the server [using q()] should also result in the service being removed from the browser.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
