  Description     : WSD/LLMNR Discovery/Name Service Daemon

With Microsoft turning off SMB1 feature completely on Windwos 10, any Samba 
shares on the local network become invisible to Windwos 10 computers. That's 
due to the fact that SMB1 is required for Computer Browser service to function.

Newer Windows systems can use WSD (Web Services for Devices) to discover shares 
hosted on other Windows computers while Linux systems normally utilize 
mNDS/DNS-SD for service discovery. Microsoft is moving to support mDNS/DNS-SD, 
but not yet there.

The primary purpose of this project is to enable WSD on OpenMediaVault so that 
network shares hosted on a OMV4 box can appear in Windows File Explorer / 

The original source code was taken from Netgear ReadyNAS OS v6.9.3 published

(used by openwrt)
