Bonjour (Zeroconf) Networking for Windows and Linux @ the Adafruit Learning System

Raspberry Pi everywhere! A WiFi radio, a WiFi camera, arcade machine, media center, 3D print server, maybe a spare development machine or two…how to keep track of all this on a network?

Zeroconf (aka Bonjour, very rarely Rendezvous) is a group of technologies to “automagically” discover systems and services on a local area network.

With the proliferation of embedded, networked Raspberry Pi projects, it can be a chore to keep track of numeric IP addresses for each. Dynamically-assigned addresses (via DHCP) can further confuse the issue.

Zeroconf helps by assigning the system a name (e.g. raspberrypi.local instead of 192.168.0.42). It can then be easily accessed from other computers on the local network…provided they’re also running Zeroconf!

Mac OS X and BeagleBone Black already support Zeroconf. For other systems, here’s how to set that up…
