Hi,

 

I wrote an application for WinPhone7 that needed a Zero Configuration service and could not solve this problem at all.

Now we try to convert this App into the WinPhone8 App (WinRT) - the CPU of Phone will be probable ARM.

My question: is it possible to use Bonjour 3.0 for Windows for this purpose?

 

Thanks in advance


Bonjour for Windows, Other OS

    Wow, so many answers

     

    I have now a solution for my problem and this solution dont need any Bonjour ...

     

    The Key is to use a multicast DNS - I simply broadcast to 224.0.0.251:5353 (one-shot-queries) using ANY / PTR and listen to the answers. I get the IPs of all devices that implements the service I'm looking for (for example _daap._tcp.local) plus my own IP as an echo.

     

    I think this is a best and simplest solution for WinRT - you can wait many time for an Bonjour's implementation as I see
