Local Peer Discovery protocol implementation
|Reported by:||Eszet||Owned by:||Eszet|
Local Peer Discovery allows to detect nearby peers on the local network for rapid data exchange. In order to provide such a discovery mechanism in a zero-conf fashion, HTTP-style datagrams are broadcasted and received as part of the LPD client's background activity. Upon discovery, a compatible client shall add suitable peers to its torrent pool and initiate peer-to-peer communications.
Compatible implementations known to exist are: uTorrent, libtorrent.
