Run Zeroconf for Linux in a Snap

  • Enterprise Networking Planet; By Carla Schroder (Posted by tuxchick2 on Jul 6, 2006 4:35 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
The fond dream of computer users everywhere is to plug in their computers and watch as networking automagically sets itself up. Computers are connected and give themselves IP addresses.

Apple users have long been able to do this with Bonjour (formerly Rendezvous). No messy hassles with DHCP, DNS, smbclient, or NIS; no horrid kludges to enable interoperability with cliquish platforms like Windows that hate to share with non-Windows systems.
