avahi/zero-conf and ufw

Asked by Brewster Malevich on 2008-09-06

avahi/zero-conf/bonjour! is magic to me. I don't fully understand how it works internally. With my previous firewall front-end (Firestarter) I had to modify quite a few things in order to get avahi to pass-through my wall and function properly.
What sort of rules do I need to pass in ufw for avahi to function?

"sudo ufw allow 5298/tcp" does the trick. I'm opening a bug to try to add an app profile to Empathy.

When you do, plz post a link. I'll be happy to make the profile if
nobody else does.

Check if would like to change something in the profile. I've only copied the one from CUPS and change it accordingly.
