ZeroConf for Max/MSP 
Tuesday, May 3, 2011 11:42 - OpenSoundControl
Are you still using the old osc-bonjour? there's now the more flexible zeroconf.browse, zeroconf.resolve and zeroconf.register externals that let's you browse, resolve and register any kind of zeroconf services.

They are much more integrated with Max5 than osc-bonjour was, using attributes... etc

oscbonjour for maxmsp draft 
Friday, June 16, 2006 17:36 - OpenSoundControl

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 oscbonjour

svn co 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osc-bonjour for Max/MSP is no longer maintained, please use the more general zeroconf.browse, zeroconf.resolve and zeroconf.register externals instead.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.

It solves the known bug of using otupd with max scheduler in audio-interupt. And better integrates with MaxMSP threading.

I've made a small utility that can change the address part of an OSC message and send it to another destination.
It's particuarly useful when you have 2 applications with different OSC-namespaces that you want to interconnect.
