Mercury Security has chosen to implement the mDNS (multicast-DNS) and DNS-SD (DNS Service Discovery) methods of the Zeroconf standard. Zeroconf is sometimes also known as Bonjour. This is a common, open standard in use for discovery of network resources. Under Zeroconf, devices announce the services they offer, and how to connect to them. Mercury Devices announce the following services, according to Zeroconf guidelines:
The Mercury-specific service names eventually may be reserved and registered with the Zeroconf Foundation (zeroconf.org). This will provide reasonable assurance that the service names cannot be used by non-Mercury devices in the future.
Disabling ZeroConf Discovery
The ZeroConf discovery service can be disabled within the web browser of the EP/LP controller
