RFC 2782 prohibited name compression to accommodate older DNS implementations that didn't know about SRV. Because SRV predates mDNS, we made the conscious decision that all mDNS implementations should know how to decompress SRV. We'll update the draft to make this explicit. > (2) The mDNS library is not removing the compression before > returning the records to the client application. That would be a bug, but we can't reproduce it. If you send a SIGINFO to mDNSResponder, it will dump out its record cache to syslog: sudo killall -INFO mDNSResponder When you do this, do you see valid SRV records with correct host names? If so, then this proves that mDNSResponder *must* have decompressed the SRV record properly -- it doesn't save the original packet, so if there were still compression pointers in the rdata in the cache, it would have no way to decode them. (One last question: you're talking about multicast DNS packets here, right? The unicast DNS code path in mDNSResponder is different, and may have different bugs, but in that case the unicast DNS server shouldn't be compressing the SRV in the first place, as you pointed out.)
