func Lookup Uses

func Lookup(service string, entries chan<- *ServiceEntry) error

Lookup is the same as Query, however it uses all the default parameters

func Query Uses

func Query(params *QueryParam) error

Query looks up a given service, in a domain, waiting at most for a timeout before finishing the query. The results are streamed to a channel. Sends will not block, so clients should make sure to either read or buffer.

type Config Uses

type Config struct {
    // Zone must be provided to support responding to queries
    Zone Zone

    // Iface if provided binds the multicast listener to the given
    // interface. If not provided, the system default multicase interface
    // is used.
    Iface *net.Interface

    // LogEmptyResponses indicates the server should print an informative message
    // when there is an mDNS query for which the server has no response.
    LogEmptyResponses bool

Config is used to configure the mDNS server

type MDNSService Uses

type MDNSService struct {
    Instance string   // Instance name (e.g. "hostService name")
    Service  string   // Service name (e.g. "_http._tcp.")
    Domain   string   // If blank, assumes "local"
    HostName string   // Host machine DNS name (e.g. "")
    Port     int      // Service Port
    IPs      []net.IP // IP addresses for the service's host
    TXT      []string // Service TXT records
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

MDNSService is used to export a named service by implementing a Zone

func NewMDNSService Uses

func NewMDNSService(instance, service, domain, hostName string, port int, ips []net.IP, txt []string) (*MDNSService, error)

NewMDNSService returns a new instance of MDNSService.

If domain, hostName, or ips is set to the zero value, then a default value will be inferred from the operating system.

TODO(reddaly): This interface may need to change to account for "unique record" conflict rules of the mDNS protocol. Upon startup, the server should check to ensure that the instance name does not conflict with other instance names, and, if required, select a new name. There may also be conflicting hostName A/AAAA records.

func (*MDNSService) Records Uses

func (m *MDNSService) Records(q dns.Question) []dns.RR

Records returns DNS records in response to a DNS question.

type QueryParam Uses

type QueryParam struct {
    Service             string               // Service to lookup
    Domain              string               // Lookup domain, default "local"
    Timeout             time.Duration        // Lookup timeout, default 1 second
    Interface           *net.Interface       // Multicast interface to use
    Entries             chan<- *ServiceEntry // Entries Channel
    WantUnicastResponse bool                 // Unicast response desired, as per 5.4 in RFC

QueryParam is used to customize how a Lookup is performed

func DefaultParams Uses

func DefaultParams(service string) *QueryParam

DefaultParams is used to return a default set of QueryParam's

type Server Uses

type Server struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

mDNS server is used to listen for mDNS queries and respond if we have a matching local record

func NewServer Uses

func NewServer(config *Config) (*Server, error)

NewServer is used to create a new mDNS server from a config

func (*Server) Shutdown Uses

func (s *Server) Shutdown() error

Shutdown is used to shutdown the listener

type ServiceEntry Uses

type ServiceEntry struct {
    Name       string
    Host       string
    AddrV4     net.IP
    AddrV6     net.IP
    Port       int
    Info       string
    InfoFields []string

    Addr net.IP // @Deprecated
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

ServiceEntry is returned after we query for a service

type Zone Uses

type Zone interface {
    // Records returns DNS records in response to a DNS question.
    Records(q dns.Question) []dns.RR

Zone is the interface used to integrate with the server and to serve records dynamically
