I want to be able to use a name hostname.local when trying to TCP/IP connect to a Photon within a Wireless LAN.
I understand that the Photon’s hostname is by default its device id, or as set by WiFi.setHostname().
Another way of putting this is: I want to ping hostname.local
Using a common network scanning tool such as Fing, the device shows up with DHCP name of “Generic” instead of the configured hostname.
This is a common use case and have seen others wanting to perform this without having to resort to fixed IP’s.
