@Jake-Biker ah ok - yeah that makes sense.. Good luck, let us know how it turns out.. Yeah I get discovery to make life simple for stuff.. I mean you can not expect grandma to know the IP of some iot device she connects, that sort of thing.
But all companies should also account for segmented networks.. And the ability add devices not on the same segment - discovery doesn't always work in all environments
On my wish list is for companies to allow for turning off discovery as well - some of these applications are noisy as AF.. sending out broadcast or multicast every 10 seconds.. I don't need discovery, and if I did I don't need it running 24/7/365 when I have already discovered my device, etc.
Freaking plex sends out discovery every 10 seconds, not a thing I need or want. And there is no way to turn it off.. I finally blocked it at the switch port with an ACL ;)
And don't get me started with smart wifi light bulbs - noisy SOBs
