Zeroconf polling

July 15, 2024

ID 222066

This polling type is supported only for Linux-based distribution points.

A distribution point can poll networks that have devices with IPv6 addresses. In this case, IP ranges are not specified and the distribution point polls the whole network by using zero-configuration networking (referred to as Zeroconf). To start using Zeroconf, you must install the avahi-browse utility on the distribution point.

To enable Zeroconf polling:

  1. In the console tree, in the Device discovery folder, select the IP ranges subfolder.

    You can proceed from the Unassigned devices folder to the Device discovery folder by clicking Poll now.

  2. Click Configure polling.
  3. In the IP ranges properties window that opens, select Enable polling with Zeroconf technology.

After that, the distribution point starts to poll your network. In this case, the specified IP ranges are ignored.
