Unfortunately NAT breaks many protocols in this way... not just Avahi.

It's not really reasonable for us to try and detect this.. avahi is also primarily designed for local networks, not VPNs, etc.. so it's not really in the use case either.

So unfortunately; we won't support this.. you would be best to renumber your networks not to conflict and drop the netmap stuff.
