A basic client for Bonjour multicast DNS (mDNS), primarily used for testing local mDNS service. When invoked with no arguments, it prints a usage statement to standard error. In most instances, the command doesn't return on its own, so you'll need to use Ctrl-C to break out.
When registering or looking up a name like website._http._tcp.local., website is the
service_name, http is the
app_protocol, tcp is the
transport_protocol, and local is the
domain. For example, to register such a service:
mDNS -R website _http._tcp local 80 "my web site"
Test mDNS by repeatedly adding, updating, and then deleting an HINFO resource record for Test._testupdate._tcp.local..
