Does anyone know if Fortinet has any plans to properly support mDNS service discovery across networks/vlans with proper filtering and caching like many other competitors out there? I know the current solution is to enable multicast routing but I really think this should be a more formal feature implementation with a caching and reply function much like an Application Layer Gateway implementation. So many other vendors like Cisco have supported this for nearly a decade. mDNS is here to stay and I think FortiGates should do a better job of making this an easy feature to turn on and control which would greatly improve functionality and security of customer office networks.
I've found something that might be useful but couldnt find anything further than the CLI reference. Can anybody link articles that further describe this feature? Fingers crossed that it works not just with WiFi but across regular wired VLANs also.
