beware this is just a draft
here is a max/msp external for OSX (UniversalBinary) and windows doing Bonjour/ZeroConf service discovery and announcement:
basically there are only 3 messages:
browse: browse for available services of type _osc._udp
resolve name: get hostname and port number from service name
register name port: register and a service of type _osc._udp with specificied name and UDP port number
here is the download link:
and the old one
for the windows version you'll need to install Bonjour for windows:
the sourcecode is available on sourceforge under a BSD license, you'll need 2 modules: oscbonjour and zeroconf, here are the commands you need to run:
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/osctools/trunk/oscbonjour oscbonjour
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/osctools/trunk/zeroconf zeroconf
osc-bonjour for Max/MSP is no longer maintained, please use the more general zeroconf.browse, zeroconf.resolve and zeroconf.register externals instead.
They are much simpler and powerful and let you work with any kind of zeronf services, not just _osc._udp.
