llmnrd - Link-Local Multicast Resolution Daemon
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.
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
To cross-compile llmnrd for a different architecture, use the
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
To run llmnrd in the default mode (listening on UDP port 5355):
By default, LLMNR name resolution is only possible over IPv4. To additionally enable LLMNR name resolution over IPv6 use:
$ llmnrd -6
llmnrd --help to show additional usage information.
llmnr-query utility is shipped together with llmnrd and
can be used to send customized LLMNR queries:
$ llmnr-query <hostname>
llmnr-query --help to show additional usage information.
