Yes I noticed that too - even more motivation to find a different way

Yes - unfortunately all that only works against Win7. Doesn't work on
Win2012 or Win10

As far as I'm aware, LLMNR is multicast-only - which in practice means
broadcast-only? We've got a global WAN - over 200 sites. I can't rely on
broadcast/multicast - gotta be unicast.
Thanks for the help - you did some real digging there :-)
