Hello, I have been directed to this list by IANA when I asked the
I am researching ways of device/machine discovery on the
is similar to the Discovery phase of UPnP devices, which uses the SSDP
I have researched far enough to know that my best bet for UDP
multicast address group is the Site-Local Scope address range of
SSDP and UPnP protocols use the address 188.8.131.52
My question is this:
How do I pick a group address within this range and not have a
chance of colliding with some other application on the network already
using the group address I just picked?
Do I just randomly pick an address in that range and hope for
the best? I am running on Windows and cannot assume that there is a
MADCAP server available.
Thanks in advance!
