Yep - I want existing standard stuff, but the devil we know seems to swamp the spectrum with 802.11s. Googling leads to a paper that could be useful. I don't have access - but they seem to claim that they can get DNS-SD to _not_ mess the mesh up with some new technique requiring new and adventurous patches affecting the mesh routing nodes: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/Xplore/login.jsp?url=/iel5/4489030/4489031/04489571.pdf?temp=x I don't want adventure. I want something old and safe ;-) Maybe we can fake this with good old DNS lookups - but those will fail if the DNS server has a wildcard (like commercial hotspots do). DNS lookup + http check? Why do the ugliest solutions end up being the ones that work in the field? cheers, m -- martin.langh...@gmail.com mar...@laptop.org -- School Server Architect - ask interesting questions - don't get distracted with shiny stuff - working code first - http://wiki.laptop.org/go/User:Martinlanghoff _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
