How to - a desktop app uses autodiscovery, to open a browser then contact a web app at that IP?

Hello all.

I want to create desktop app that connects to a LAN based, headless web app using auto-discovery. From the IP gained through that connection, I want to open the default browser and launch the web app.

Has anyone every done that? Any sample code or ideas how to do this?

Thanks all,

Well as you just said , use AutoDiscovery.

Have the server listen and broadcast the code, once client enrols , have the server to send a message to broadcast the ip or other trigger, then client side parse the data and process, then fire the app .

And to get an idea, you have a full working app on the Examples -> Communication -> Internet -> Autodiscovery project , have a look there.
