I am trying to implement a mDNS for esp8266 in Arduino IDE following this guide.


I cannot get the esp8266.local name to work - when i ping it it returns an error unresolved host and putting it in a browser also does not resolve...

The IP address does resolve though. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am using Mac OS High Sierra and have seen that many people have experienced this problem on both windows and mac but there does not seem to be a solution yet.

Any ideas?

Thanks x

  • Post your serial output. Make sure the device is getting an ip address on the network. – tavis Jan 25 at 8:08
  • I have had the same issue. It gets an IP address, but seemingly won't use mDNS. I think it's either an OS or router issue. Are you able to try different routers? – RDragonrydr Jan 29 at 19:10
