 Hi Group,

I am surprised to see that the Android doesn't yet have a zeroconf
stack as part of its API. Zeroconf allows you to find services (eg Web
Servers, Instant Messaging peers, SIP) on a given network with minimal
effort, something a mobile device going to new places I would envisage
doing alot.

Obvious starting points could be Avahi (as found in most major linux
distributions and jmdns). Apple also have the open source
mDNSResponder. (zeroconf is found on the iPhone under the name
Bonjour).

For more information see:  http://www.zeroconf.org .
