|61||61|| * By default Avahi will not consider a Point-To-Point link (such as a VPN link) for mDNS traffic. This has multiple reasons. One is security, since usually P-t-P links are used for connections to the Internet. Secondly, P-t-P links are usually much slower latency-wise than normal Ethernet based LAN. mDNS however is designed exclusively for low-latency networks. A number of timeout limitations inhibit the use of mDNS over long-latency links. Finally, multicasting is usually not supported or at least cumbersome on P-t-P links. If you still want to use Avahi with P-t-P links, you can enable the '''allow-point-to-point=''' option in Avahi's configuration file. But don't come to us and whine when it doesn't work for you. YMMV.
