Networking Technology As It Should Have Always Been

Rendezvous enables Macs and compatible networked devices and services to automatically configure themselves and find each other without intervention from a system administrator or network devices like DHCP, DNS or directory servers. Based on an open industry standard called Zeroconf, Rendezvous' underpinning technology is not specific to the Mac, though Apple has attempted to promote it most effectively on Mac OS X.

Apple is further promoting the standard more with the release of Rendezvous technology for Java clients, POSIX platforms including Linux (news - web sites), Solaris and FreeBSD, and a "technology preview" for Windows.
Developers for those platforms interested in finding out more can do so on Apple's Developer Web site.
