    Post IP address discovery

    Can anybody write a IP address discovery socket program using UDP. The application should be of client-server type, wherein the client is listening on a pre-defined port no. for broadcast packets from the server and replies back to the server with its IP address.

    Thanks!

    This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

    There was an important program to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.

    Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

    Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's program.

    Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

    It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done

    You expect people to just write code for you?

    We're willing to help you if you have any specific problems, but don't think that people will do work that you should be doing yourself.
