Summary0003866: local peer discovery should be implemented
DescriptionIdeally by announcing and querying using different mDNS backends like bonjour/apple?, android?/binder, avahi/dbus, mdns/ubus, ...
Another way might be to use UDPv6 link-local multicast directly on-top of Ethernet-like media.
TagsNo tags attached.

We do use UPDv6 multicast, and UDPv4 broadcast for local discovery already.

I see, looking at the code it seems sufficient.
It would be nice to allow configuring the specific interface to use for multicast/broadcast as well as adding/removing interfaces during runtime.
