I'm working on a client app for the Kindle Fire that will communicate with a Windows based server running on the same wifi.
I'm rolling my own service location by having the server do a multicast broadcast of its address. I'm having the damndest time getting the Kindle Fire to receive the UDP Multicast though.
Then I found THIS
So now I have the following questions.
1) Does this problem impact Kindle Fire devices?
2) If so, what would be the work around? Is there a Service Discovery Protocol that exists on the Fire and in the Windows universe? (SSDP, for example...). I thought using such a thing would be overkill, but maybe not now...
