Bonjour / mDNS reflection on Ubiquiti EdgeOS
Dec 20, 2015
One minute read

mDNS reflection is helpful when trying to get Apple devices to find each other using Bonjour when they happen to be on different subnets.

Getting a Ubiquiti Edgerouter to act as an mDNS reflector between multiple ports used to involve installing avahi on the router and then modifying the /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf file to enable reflection by uncommenting the following line and changing the no to a yes.


However, now the reflector can be enabled using the GUI configuration tree.

GUI config tree tab

In the config tree, navigate to service > mdns and click the + sign next to reflector.

After doing this, be sure to click the Preview button to save the change.
