New Avahi service requires restart to work with Chromecast

  • I am trying out new Avahi package.
    It won't pickup chromecast on my windows box (but shows up on android) until I restart Avahi service just once after a reboot/upgrade.
    Only way I can get it to work is by restarting Avahi service.
    But it works just fine after one restart.
    I did create firewall rules to allow inter-vlan communication.
    Old avahi package worked with this firewall rule.

  • hmm I think I figured it out
    For some reason it thinks vlan100's ip address is (pfblockerng) and not

    Joining mDNS multicast group on interface igb2.100.IPv4 with address

    edit: removing pfblockerng fixed the issue.
