Network discovery in Java


Hi,

I'm trying to make a client/server Java App. Both client and server will be running on the same wi-fi network. Server will be running on a specific port that client is aware of.

I am planning to send a multicast message from client through the network for that specific port to discover the server. However, I'm not too sure how I can find out which IP in my network received my message.

Do I need to create a socket on the client and listen to incoming packets once I send my multicast message in case server replies back?

Thanks in advance.

This isn't really a Linux question. Try somewhere like StackOverflow as they're really good with questions like these.

Programming is not specifically for Linux based questions, I would say that the original question is perfectly at home here.

I've always received very informative answers on here. That's why I tried to ask it on here. Anyways, I asked the same question on stackoverflow.

@acid_kewpie Doh, forgot which forum I was in. I hope the stackoverflow recommendation helped though.
