The Multiple MulticastSubnet Architecture is shown in Figure 9.

readme_files/image011.png Figure 9 – The Multiple MulticastSubnet Architecture

This architecture is the same as the previous architecture except in this architecture the mDNS messages do not pass through routers connecting the MulticastSubnets. This means that a Client calling FindServersOnNetwork will only receive a list of applications running on the MulticastSubnets that the LDS-ME is connected to.

A Client that wants to connect to a remote MulticastSubnet shall use out of band discovery (i.e. manual entry) of a HostName or DiscoveryUrl. Once a Client finds an LDS-ME on a remote MulticastSubnet it can use FindServersOnNetwork to discover all applications on that MulticastSubnet.
