LLTD Responder brings Vista Network Map to life!

    I just installed the latest Vista build, and the new LLTP Responder service for XP on all the other machines on my network.
    Now the network map feature finally works, and it looks pretty cool too.


    I would have said it was NeonLight that needed to go through two switches to reach the gateway and not Pavilion, but otherwise its got everything right.

    Guess the Xbox 360 needs a dashboard update to add a similar service.

    That's good news, but I doubt that your gateway is a portable device. Tongue Out

    Now if you could persuade Microsoft to support Zeroconf instead of the 'anything but Simple Service Discovery Protocol', well that'd be cool.

    Apple makes Bonjour available.  As for Microsoft supporting Zeroconf, good luck.  Will never happen.  Microsoft and standards are like oil and water

    RJ - Microsoft *do* follow some standards, but I think there is certainly a bias towards NIH. Which is sad, you know it is *just* possible that some software that is written outside of Redmond is actually usable and quite sensibly defined. Sort of like this MSN/Yahoo thing - this was never a technology issue but it is being made out to be leap in technology, regardless of the fact that most Jabber servers (another pet interest of mine) have supported cross-network IM for quite a while - Microsoft take on someone else's technology? Not a chance.

    Well the gateway is a Netgear WGT634U which can take USB hard drives and act as a UPNP media server. So I guess it't being picked up by that.

    Thanks for mentioning this! I installed the LLTP Responder onto three of my XP machines and the network map looks awesome!

    That is a really cool map feature, it is the sort of thing that makes me wish I had a more complex network. Tongue Out

    Yeah, the thing looks kinda sad with just my desktop (on Vista) and my laptop (on XP) on it. Smiley

    Btw, the map shows a hub between my desktop and my laptop, but there isn't one, cause I'm using a crosslink cable. Can't it tell? Tongue Out

    I don't know if this is a stupid question Perplexed, but where do I download the LLTD responder program for Windows XP? Tongue Out

    I can't find it anywhere! [C]

    Thanks.

    It's on Connect, not sure if it's available anywhere else.

    It's on Connect? I guess that means I can't get it. Anyone wanna get in contact with me sebs89 at msn dot c0m. Surely I'm allowed to test LLTD responder. Heck, I've tested Vista since the beginning.

    Thanks, it really means a lot to me.

    You do realize what UPnP is, right?

    So  I guess there is no way I can download the LLTD Responder application? Or is there other software for XP that would implement the LLTD protocol somehow?

    Thanks!
