NAME

ssdp-scanScan for SSDP capable devices on attached networks

SYNOPSIS

ssdp-scan

DESCRIPTION

ssdp-scan is a tool for scanning for Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) capable devices on attached networks. It sends M-SEARCH * to 239.255.255.250 to continuously update a list of SSDP hosts.

OPTIONS

ssdp-scan has no command line options.

NOTES

ssdp-scan is very impatient. In order to scan for hosts it sends M-SEARCH * messages every other second, which can result in lots of replies, which in turn causes ssdp-scan to retrieve XML files from each replying host. Be careful.
ssdp-scan does not terminate on its own. It scans continuously until the user stops it by pressing Ctrl-C.
ssdp-scan does not rely on a local SSDP responder. It has no dependencies besides a standard UNIX libc.
