I'm having trouble connecting Reveal with my iOS Simulator from XCode. Upon going through the debugging guide here:, I tried running the command

dns-sd -B _reveal._tcp local

and got the unexpected output that you can find in the attached file (I would wait there forever and tried Control + C as they suggest in the guide but there is no output like suggested in the guide). Further , I realized in my console that I get the "Month 13 is out of bounds" error multiple times, not sure if that is helpful information. Please help! Thanks for your time :)

    Hi John, I'm sorry you're having troubles connecting your iOS app with Reveal. At the bottom of the article you linked, there's a section titled "Still Having Issues?" - I'd ask that you check point 3 in that list on your machine. Generally when there are issues with Bonjour resolving, they come back to a modified /etc/hosts file, or a firewall.
