 Zero Configuration Networking with Linux

Nice overview.

"Zero Configuration Networking (Zeroconf) is a standard method of establishing communications between computers and allowing them to advertise and access each others' resources. It is designed to ease some of the complexities involved in computer networking -- in fact, it is designed to remove them altogether, by requiring no user configuration at all. Zeroconf is generally intended for use with small ad-hoc networks such as those typically found in a home environment. With Zeroconf, users should be able to plug two computers together with a crossover cable and instantly be able to access services hosted by one computer on the other, and vice versa."
