SSDP Responder 2.1

Simple Service Discovery Protocol daemon (SSDP) for networked Linux and UNIX devices. Useful in any setup, big or small, but targeted more at embedded systems that need to announce themselves to Windows systems. ssdpd is a stand-alone UNIX daemon with no external dependencies but the standard C library. It has a built-in web server for serving the UPnP XML description which Windows use to present the icon, by default an InternetGatewayDevice is announced. Also included is the ssdp-scan tool, which continuously scans for SSDP capable hosts on the network. Take care only to use this for debugging since it scans the network quite aggressively.
