Title: mDNS repeater plugin does not list my OpenVPN connection
Post by: nununo on January 06, 2019, 11:48:16 pm
Hi,

I created a separate subnet segment in my home for IoT devices. I am using mDNS repeater so that stuff like Sonos speakers and AirPrint printers can still be automatically discovered from my other subnet.

But I also connect to my home via OpenVPN which creates a 3rd subnet.

Unfortunately the mDNS repeater plugin doesn't list my OpenVPN connection. So, when I connect via VPN I have no access to any of the devices that depend on mDNS.

Is there any way to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance,
Nuno

Hum... I'm not so sure what the problem is anymore. Because I just managed to connect to one of these discoverable services. My Sonos devices still don't show but another one did. I will better investigate this when I'm back home.

Anyway, the question remains: if indeed mDNS multicast traffic is reaching my OpenVPN subnet, how is that happening?
