KDE zeroconf solution using Avahi (kdnssd) located in the kdnnsd-avahi package allows the setup of non-routable private networks without performing any configuration. Avahi includes multicast DNS (mDNS) and DNS service discovery (DNS-SD), which automatically detects services on a network. It connects them to access resources like printers without the need for a DHCP server or static IP addresses. IP addresses determined using either IPv6 or IPv4 Link-Local address. IPv4 Link-Local address assigned from network pool.
Distributions like Red Hat and Fedora use the DNS service discovery.
