llmnrd - Link-Local Multicast Resolution Daemon

Build Status Coverity Status

llmnrd is a daemon implementing the Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) protocol according to RFC 4795. It currently only supports Linux, as it uses the netlink kernel interface.

llmnrd will respond to name resolution queries sent by Windows clients in networks where no DNS server is available. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6.

Installation

To build and install llmnrd use the following commands:

$ make
$ sudo make install

By default, the llmnrd binary will be installed to /usr/local/sbin. To install the binary to a different installation path, use:

$ make
$ sudo make prefix=<path> install

Cross-Compilation

To cross-compile llmnrd for a different architecture, use the CROSS_COMPILE make variable. To e.g. build it using the arm-linux-gnueabihf toolchain use:

$ make CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-

When cross-compiling, you usually don't want to install the generated binary to your root filesystem, but to the sysroot of a cross-compiled system. Use the DESTDIR variable to change the installation destination path, e.g.

$ make DESTDIR=$HOME/sysroot/ prefix=/usr install

Usage

To run llmnrd in the default mode (listening on UDP port 5355):

$ llmnrd

By default, LLMNR name resolution is only possible over IPv4. To additionally enable LLMNR name resolution over IPv6 use:

$ llmnrd -6

Use llmnrd --help to show additional usage information.

Additionally, the llmnr-query utility is shipped together with llmnrd and can be used to send customized LLMNR queries:

$ llmnr-query <hostname>

Use llmnr-query --help to show additional usage information.
