Getting Started with mDNS Responder Sample Source
- 2 minutes to read
- Compile the project mDNSResponder to get mDNSResponder.exe, which is a service. Copy the .exe to the target machine then register the service and run.
- Run “mDNSResponder.exe /?” to print the usage
- Compile the project dnssd, it would generate dnssd.dll
- Compile the project mDNSUWP. It’s a UWP broker that talks to dnssd.dll and will generate its own dll and winmd
- Compile the project mDNSTest, which is a sample UWP app to consume mDNSUWP and eventually talks into mDNSResponder service.
- This UWP app depends on both dnssd.dll and the UWP broker (there is script configured to copy everything into the UWP appx folder)
- Deploy/launch mDNSTest, set an ID and click Register, the respond code should be 0 (SUCCESS)
- If you run any Bonjour Browser at the same time, the new (fake) device should be listed.
- Download the Bonjour-compatible mDNS Responder for Windows IoT (sample source) here.
