NSNetService class description

NSNetService : NSObject

Declared in:
Foundation/NSNetServices.h
Availability: OpenStep

NSNetService lets you publish a network service in a domain using multicast DNS. Additionally, it lets you resolve a network service that was discovered by NSNetServiceBrowser . This class is an abstract superclass for concrete implementations of its functionality.

Warning the underscore at the start of the name of this instance variable indicates that, even though it is not technically private, it is intended for internal use within the package, and you should not use the variable in other code.

NSNetServiceBrowser class description

NSNetServiceBrowser : NSObject

Declared in:
Foundation/NSNetServices.h
Availability: OpenStep

NSNetServiceBrowser asynchronously lets you discover network domains and, additionally, search for a type of network service. It sends its delegate a message whenever it discovers a new network service, and whenever a network service goes away.

Each NSNetServiceBrowser performs one search at a time. So in order to perform multiple searches simultaneously, create multiple instances. This class is an abstract superclass for concrete implementations of its functionality.
