Minissdpd on Debian Testing spamming log files

Presumably after an update to the version of minissdpd running on my two Debian testing boxes, am seeing a lot of log spam from minissdpd picked up by logcheck, in the shape of entries like

Feb 14 06:02:06 nasqueron minissdpd[30585]: peer 192.168.0.22:64111 is not from a LAN

I've seen references on the miniupnp forum and in other places to changing the configuration for miniupnp to treat network ranges as part of the LAN, but can't see how to do this for minissdpd. Posted this query on the miniupnp forum but not had a response, so thought I would try here as likely to be more Debian testing users here....

Minissdpd config (/etc/default/minissdpd) shown below:

# MiniSSDPd default configuration

# Set this to 1 if you want to start the daemon
START_DAEMON=1

# Set this to the IP/interface you want the demon to run on
# Notes:
#  1. It is mandatory to use the network interface name in order to enable IPv6
#     HTTP is available on all interfaces.
#  2. Specifying IP when built with IPv6 support is disabled by original
#     author, so this option may not be available outside Debian.
MiniSSDPd_INTERFACE_ADDRESS=0.0.0.0

# This defines other options which you might want to use when
# starting MiniSSDPd.
MiniSSDPd_OTHER_OPTIONS="-6" 

Thanks Enoch

Try specifying name of the interface you're using to connect to your LAN, like eth0 or wlan0 or enp0s25, whatever ip addr tells you as the argument to MiniSSDPd_INTERFACE_ADDRESS.

If that doesn't work, try listing all interfaces you have, e.g.

-i wlan0 -i eth0

under the `other options` key.

Thanks, trying it now. When I read the comments in the config file it seems so straightforward lol....

Re: Minissdpd on Debian Testing spamming log files

Hmmm that has fixed the problem with traffic originating from my LAN which is awesome. However am now seeing traffic coming from 192.168.100.* range. Not sure if this is my router (a superhub 3 from Virgin) which is showing traffic from people connecting to the WiFi as part of their mesh style service or something else. Not seeing that hosts with that IP range connected to the router when I look at their monitoring pages.

Cheers
