Chapter 3. Supporting Bonjour

Power Manager supports Bonjour, aka ZeroConf.

This section documents the Bonjour service types published by Power Manager instances.

Power Manager's Service Types

Power Manager uses a single Bonjour service type, _pm._tcp.. This service type can be used to browse and resolve addresses to Power Manager instances on the network.

Power Manager's protocol allows multiple APIs to be provided over a single listening socket. All traffic is encrypted using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

pm - DssW Power Manager protocol

The Power Manager (pm) protocol is a proprietary protocol developed for Power Manager 4. The service is published as _pm._tcp..

The service type is defined as the constant kPMZeroConfServiceType in PowerManager.framework.
