AVAHI or Bonjour Across VLAN's

Howdy Gents,

 

I am trying to setup an AVAHI Daemon for mDNS, Bonjour etc. across multiple network segments. I figured the easiest way to do this would be via a docker container but I haven't had any success finding an UNRAID template. Has anyone else done this via a docker container? Maybe I could just leverage the AVAHI Daemon that's in UNRAID? Open to suggestions but note that I have no additional hardware for AVAHI - this would need to run on the host or docker container. Thanks!

Did you ever figure this out? I have my IoT devices on one subnet while computers are on another. It's great for security, but I can't AirPlay because of it..

Hey, is there any chance to make it work also with docker networks? 
I have a chromecast on my "localdomain" network and a homeassistant docker in a "reverseproxy" network. (created with "create docker network reverseproxy")
While i can ping chromecast.localdomain from homeassistant console, i doesn't appear in the devices even with manually setup.
How can i repeat the mdns from one domain to another?
I can't find how to setup avahi. Since pfsense doens't have access to "reverseproxy" domain

Any luck with this? I'm in the exact same boat as you with home assistant, I read an old post about someone setting up avahi on a small ubuntu VM. May try that later. 

 

Edit: No luck enabling avahi in an ubuntu VM. Not sure if there's a solution. I ended up setting up the cast node in node-red to handle sending announcements to speakers around the house.
