Bug Description

If for debugging purposes one reads the output from running:


at the command line, one will see statements like:

DEBUG: Found "Sales._ipp._tcpzeroconf.org"...
DEBUG: Querying "Sales._ipp._tcp.zeroconf.org"...
DEBUG: sent=0, count=1
DEBUG: Found "Stuart's Home AirPrint Printer._ipp._tcpzeroconf.org"...
DEBUG: Found "3rd. Floor Copy Room._ipp._tcpzeroconf.org"...
DEBUG: Found "Engineering._ipp._tcpzeroconf.org"...
DEBUG: Found "Marketing._ipp._tcpzeroconf.org"...

The domain component is not separated from the 'protocol component' of the dns record.

I have been unable to get cups to work with non-local (I mean services that are not served up by mdns in the domain .local) dns-sd ipp printers. (using unicast dns, I have gotten this to work with cups on OS X 10.6). I kept getting a DNS error:


At first I believed this was because the dns name was being constructed incorrectly, but after reading the source, I believe the problem is unrelated.

At any rate, it's a stupid bug and ERROR: DNS failure: NXDOMAIN
it should be fixed.
