     5Overview:

     8Best toolkit to use is probably Apple's Bonjour:
     9 * http://developer.apple.com/networking/bonjour
     10 * Python interface: http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/fl/research/accessgrid/bonjour-py/bonjour-py.html
     11 * Windows licensing agreement: http://developer.apple.com/softwarelicensing/agreements/bonjour.html#bonjourwin
     12
     13Alternatives are:
     14 * Microsoft's SSDP (used by UPnP): http://www.upnp.org/resources/sdks.asp
     15 * Java's JINI (now Apache River): https://jini.dev.java.net/

     18The Open standard, SLP, seems unmaintained:
