zeroconf is a number of protocols that allow running a network (or parts of it) without any manual configuration or automatic configuration with external information (i.e. real plug'n'play for networks). This both applies to IP address configuration and service discovery. Most people know this technology as Rendezvous.

I'm out to bring Rendezvous support to Linux, not only to bring the interoperability between Linux and Mac OS X to a new level, but also to raise Linux's usability. I'm doing this by trying to integrate zeroconf/Rendezvous support into daemons and clients that are commonly used on Linux and other free operating systems.


Here you can find all the zeroconf/Rendezvous-related patches that I wrote.
