NAME

nutscan_scan_avahi - Scan network for NUT services via mDNS

SYNOPSIS

#include <nut-scan.h>
#include <unistd.h> /* useconds_t */

nutscan_device_t * nutscan_scan_avahi(useconds_t usec_timeout);

DESCRIPTION

The nutscan_scan_avahi() function tries to detect the NUT service via mDNS, and its associated devices. It uses the Avahi library to do so.

You MUST call nutscan_init(3) before using this function.

This function can query perspective IP addresses using NUT protocol, and in this case it waits up to usec_timeout microseconds before considering an IP address to be unresponsive.

RETURN VALUE

The nutscan_scan_avahi() function returns a pointer to a nutscan_device_t structure containing all found devices.

It returns NULL if an error occurs, or if no device is found.
