Title: Anyone using descfilter?
Post by: rickli on October 24, 2017, 12:01:31 PM
There's a descfilter option in nedi.conf, which let's you avoid discovering HP Laserprinters for example. Usually no one using this option, but I'm wondering if anyone relies on it?

I'm asking as I'm optimizing the discovery for 1.8 and may have to replace it with a name and sysobjidfilter instead...

Is this the same as 'ignoredesc' because I can't find any 'descfilter' option in nedi.conf.
If there is another way to filter out these devices i'll change to that.

Code: [Select]
# Do not discover devices containing these strings in the description (e.g. Printers etc.)
ignoredesc      LaserJet|JETDIRECT|HP-UX|Windows|NTserver|snom|HiveAP|snom300-SIP

Mark.

Oh yes it is :) It's been changed to ignoredesc to fit in with the rest. But I guess it's not that popular anyway...
