Turn Rendezvous on/off from the command line
Authored by: Mattbot on Oct 09, '03 10:13:23PM

This sounds a bit odd to me. I believe that the service plug-in check boxes in Directory Access were solely for accessing directory server information by those protocols, not administering the protocols themselves. For instance, unchecking NetInfo certainly does not shutdown NetInfo or you would be unable to login except in single user mode. Likewise you can run slapd with the LDAP plug-ins left unchecked.

I experimented a bit with this on my own. After unchecking Rendezvous in Directory Access I still see the mDNSResponder process running and remote machines could still ping me using my machine's .local address.

I am unaware of a means of controlling Rendezvous via the GUI but it would be welcome feature, particularly if it could allow the selective broadcasting of services (i.e. user a's website, but not user b's). Does anyone know if that's even directly possible with the Rendezvous?
