Hello Hans,

please note that the mDNS plugin let's the hosts on not-olsr networks
attached to the OLSR router (and usually announced via HNA entries) to
use mDNS across the mesh. Read carefully the README in the mdns folder
 to discover more.

it is a different thing about the mDNS messages generated from the
OLSR router. The plugin is not able to intercept those messages.
If you dig in the archives of the mailing list you will find an
attempt to do this, configuring the local avahi-demon to use the
loopback interface. However it did not work out back at the time.

In other words, if your Android Cell-Phone is also the OLSR router, it
will not work to use mDNS.
If your Adroid phone is connected to a AP, that is further connected
to a OLSR backbone, then mDNS is what you need :)
