: gmdns doesn't have a web page, or even a release. As long as you understand what it does (it's a Multicast DNS Responder) and where it sits in the super-duper Rendez-vous stack (that article
should be a good starter), the API should be self-explanatory. The only problem is, as I could see tonight, that gmdns (and therefore its ancestor mdnsd
) fail all of Apple's robustness tests (multiple TXT records, large TXT record, large NULL record). I've never written code that poked directly with DNS, but it looks like I will have to soon.
Watched Final Destination 2.
Update: not so grim, and not so gross, gmdns passes 2 of 5 robustness tests, after a bit of hacking. The rest might pass, it's just not tested :)
