21.3 SLP Front-Ends in openSUSE

To find services provided via SLP in your network, use an SLP front-end. openSUSE contains several front-ends:


slptool is a simple command line program that can be used to announce SLP inquiries in the network or announce proprietary services. slptool --help lists all available options and functions. slptool can also be called from scripts that process SLP information. For example, to find all network time servers that annouce themselves in the current network, run the command:

slptool findsrvs service:ntp

When used as a network browser, Konqueror can display all SLP services available in the local network at slp:/. Click the icons in the main window to obtain more detailed information about the relevant service. If you use Konqueror with service:/, click the relevant icon once in the browser window to set up a connection with the selected service.
