New Around Here

I have a quite simple setup on RT-AC1900P with merlin 386.2 and yazFi 4.2.0.
Whenever I have YazFi installed, my macOS(11.3.1 (20E241)) keeps revving the computer host names as in
my-mac (1) => my-mac (2) => .... => my-mac (N)
where N is as high as 1161 now. If I uninstall YazFi no such thing happens on the Merlin firmware. Is there something I might be failing to configure?

can you try running the below?
echo "sed -i '/^\[Server\]/a cache-entries-max=0' "'"$1" # '"YazFi" >> /jffs/scripts/avahi-daemon.postconf
service restart_mdns

I guess now I wait :)

This will be included in the next version of yazfi, so good to know it works
