will I like zeroconf?

YES you will (or do)

what is this magical thing everyone is talking about.

Well, simply spoken – its sends a broadcast in your network and gets back the ipadress of another machine.
I hear you saying – but thorolf, that’s a normal broadcast. You are not telling us really news.

… and it gets back the port and a decsription – ahhh that sounds cool.

zeroconf was former called Rendezvous or Bonjour in Apple systems. Now you can find it under linux also, under the name Avahi.

A longer good video about it – google zeroconf video

have fun
