    Also, as they wrote in https://serverfault.com/questions/63...g/63242#63242:
    `nast -m` probes all hosts on your network using ARP protocol, so it is quite accurate and FW-aware.

    No offense, but I'm going to stand by my original assessment of WS-DISCOVERY. Nothing in the link says "you should use this". In fact it pretty much says "i wouldn't use this if I were you". SMBv1 deprecation has been know for a long time, however, M$'s disdain for WS-DISCOVERY was more of a surprise to me. I say "use it" knowing that "you could lose it. (too)"

    Microsoft's quote on WS-DISCOVERY:
    We recommend that you map drives and printers instead of enabling this feature, which still requires searching and browsing for their devices. Mapped resources are easier to locate, require less training, and are safer to use. This is especially true if these resources are provided automatically through Group Policy. An administrator can configure printers for location by methods other than the legacy Computer Browser service by using IP addresses, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Bonjour, mDNS, uPnP, and so on.

    I'm not seeing disdain, they are just saying this feature is slow as fuck even on a small network (192.168.X.0-255) and any administrator worthy of the name should map the devices directly or use a better way, especially in a domain environment.

    Consumers that buy a printer or a NAS have a Windows application that does the "administrator" job for them by finding and connecting to the device.

    It's not deprecated, but there are much better alternatives and they make no secret of it.

    Well, that is the BLOB downside, it may work with some versions and not others and some may even have bugs, so you have to wait until nVidia give enough of a fuck to actually battle test it or add it to its regular QA
    And even then xwayland won't work with the blob - so most gaming is out of reach. And if gaming is not the goal, then nouveau would be the better idea anyways ^^
