Anyone using descfilter?
« 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
