Client Server UDP broadcast to initiate TCP connection
posted 5 years ago
I have a little project that i'm working on with a client - server architecture on a local network
My question is:-
If i were to send out a udp message with the ip address of the sender; the server will listen for this packet and then initiate a tcp connection with that device. Is this an efficient way of initiating a connection without the client device knowing the ip of the server on a local subnet?
If there is a better way, could someone recommend some reading for this?
