Fuck Avahi, fuck Aruba AirGroup, fuck Bonjour and fuck "zeroconf" networking. I spent all day configuring it.

    There's nothing in this post I disagree with 🍹

    @SortOfTested I don't own the network, I just want to use a raspberry sitting right next to me on the table but I don't have a monitor so I can't do it directly. My idea was to use SSH but addresses are distributed from a /16 subnet seemingly at random with forced dynamic assignment, so there's practically no way for me to either lock the address or scan the network whenever I want to connect. The solution would be Bonjour, if it worked.

    Could you just give it your local ip in a config file and have it phone home when it obtains an ip address?

    @SortOfTested My local IP isn't fixed either. I'm looking for a long term but hacky solution.

    @SortOfTested who are so wise in the ways of science, have you heard of a sort of Bonjour over Bluetooth protocol?

    @Lor-inc
    Modern Bonjuor also works over bluetooth, iirc.

    @Lor-inc is this for work Oo

    Your description of the network reads like a special kind of torture in hell....

    Bonjour and other services require multicast afaik.

    That might be blocked.

    A Point to Point would be the most simple solution... If you can configure the Raspberry?

    Eg setting up a WLAN or maybe via USB?

    @IntrusionCM It's a university network and they provide per-user AirGroups to solve the problem. The whole thing is _supposed_ to work, it just doesn't for some reason.

    @Lor-inc Hm, have you tried wireshark?

    To see what happens?

    @IntrusionCM I have trouble reading masks and subnet numbers, I really don't feel like the ideal candidate for debugging this.

    It's probably mulitcast filtering...

    @NeatNerdPrime They definitely do that, supposedly the network stores a table of incoming Bonjour announcements and sends them to clients on inquiry.
