Hi all

We're going to build a simple multiplayer game.

The task is to create a game that runs on multiple computers on a LAN.

I want to create a solution that don't need a server running on a specific
computer with a specific IP - all computers should be able to initiate a
game and act as server.

How can I make a application search the LAN to find if any connected
computers is running as server - without knowing the IP on the other
computers?

- Brian
