# llmnrd - Link-Local Multicast Resolution Daemon

[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/tklauser/llmnrd.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/tklauser/llmnrd)
[![Coverity Status](https://scan.coverity.com/projects/8697/badge.svg)](https://scan.coverity.com/projects/tklauser-llmnrd)

llmnrd is a daemon implementing the Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR)
protocol according to [RFC 4795](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4795). It
currently only supports Linux, as it uses the
[netlink kernel interface](http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man7/netlink.7.html).

llmnrd will respond to name resolution queries sent by Windows clients in
networks where no DNS server is available. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6.

Installation
============

To build and install llmnrd use the following commands:

```
$ make
$ sudo make install
```

By default, the llmnrd binary will be installed to /usr/local/sbin. To install
the binary to a different installation path, use:

```
$ make
$ sudo make prefix=<path> install
```

Cross-Compilation
=================

To cross-compile llmnrd for a different architecture, use the `CROSS_COMPILE`
make variable. To e.g. build it using the arm-linux-gnueabihf toolchain use:

```
$ make CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
```

When cross-compiling, you usually don't want to install the generated binary to
your root filesystem, but to the sysroot of a cross-compiled system. Use the
`DESTDIR` variable to change the installation destination path, e.g.

```
$ make DESTDIR=$HOME/sysroot/ prefix=/usr install
```

Usage
=====

To run llmnrd in the default mode (listening on UDP port 5355):

```
$ llmnrd
```

By default, LLMNR name resolution is only possible over IPv4. To additionally
enable LLMNR name resolution over IPv6 use:

```
$ llmnrd -6
```

Use `llmnrd --help` to show additional usage information.

Additionally, the `llmnr-query` utility is shipped together with llmnrd and
can be used to send customized LLMNR queries:

```
$ llmnr-query <hostname>
```

Use `llmnr-query --help` to show additional usage information.
