Thanks Monte…

I'm not familiar with Bonjour other than for the usual finding printers and OS stuff. I hadn't thought of using Bonjour to  allow IOS devices to discover other iOS devices. This seems like a good direction to experiment in.

Any example stacks floating around that demonstrate a simple iOS to iOS discovery and reply?

Thank you!
