I would like to implement as robust as possible localhost (possibly later
lan based) socket communication protocol between LiveCode based apps. While
I've done a number of experiments, any can get teh 2 way comms going no
problem - I'd like to do things in a way in which possible clashes with
other apps listening on the same ports is dealt with. For instance I don't
know which port tRev listens on?

AFAIK - this is what Zero Configuration
all about (ie Bonjour). I know there was an unsupported external
around - but I'm thinking maybe a poor amns version would be possible. On
OSX you cna use
believe - how about windows, and linux?
