Discovering the server RRS feed

  • Question

  • A part of the addon I am creating, involves a client part that will be run on the users desktop, ideally this would have been apart of the WHS connector, but as there is no way to change that, it has to be a standalone application.

    I know that you can get the ip of the server by looking in the registry, but is there any better way to discover the ip address of the server?

    Thanks.

  • Im not a developer but I believe that the connector uses UPnP to discover the server, so you may be able to extend UPnP for server discovery, or if worse comes to worse have users specify the server name as part of setup.

  • It appears the UPnP api is not yet in managed code, so I would be unable to use it.
