Hello

Maybe a silly question: :confused:

How does a Squeezebox and a Logitech Media Server "find" each other?
Does the Squeezebox scanning the subnet for a LMS? Or does the LMS somehow broadcast its existence continously?

Best regards,
Roman

On startup a player will send a UDP broadcast packet onport 3483 - any LMS server on the LAN segment who "hears" the packet will reply with its name and any other requested info. IP address of LMS server comes from UDP packet header.
