unbound dns discovery
« on: May 11, 2017, 04:06:48 am »
@work we use a print-management service called papercut.

they have this newish feature called 'mobility print', that allows byod printing easily by use of an app.

There are 2 options to get this app working
-mdns  (will probably work when using avahi to infect the network with zillions of multicasts)

-dns discovery (never heard about it)
;---------------- Mobility Print records --------------

b._dns-sd._udp       IN PTR pc-printer-discovery
lb._dns-sd._udp      IN PTR pc-printer-discovery
pc-printer-discovery IN NS  print-server-host
print-server-host    IN A   XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

;--------------- End of Mobility Print records ---------
so that would be a valid config when using a BIND zone (example from papercut docs)
Anyone know how to translate the above in unbound?

fyi captiveportal is involved.

I know i could setup a separate VM with a bind or could probably do the same on one of the DC's, but would prefer to use the resolver builtin to pfsense

Hey heper,

did you manage to get this working?

I'm having the same problem here:

I do have something similar setup using the BIND package, but this is also the only thing really preventing me from just running unbound (a.k.a "DNS Resolver") which is better integrated with the system.

There was a huge thread about this papercut stuff.. I do not recall how it turned out... I had installed their software and looked at it but hen got side tracked.. What I recall is their software was borked from there to sunset...
