Apple has released a preview version of its Rendezvous technology for Windows 2000 and XP. Rendezvous (also known as zero-configuration networking), enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. “This preview release includes full link-local support, allowing Windows machines to discover advertised HTTP and FTP servers using Internet Explorer. It also includes a printer setup wizard which allows Windows machines to print to Rendezvous networked printers, including USB shared printers connected to the AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express Base Stations. With the included Rendezvous SDK, Windows and Java developers can begin the process of adding Rendezvous service discovery to their applications.” Apple has also posted information on Rendezvous for Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, and Java Clients.
