That should be a matter between two peers. Just classic internet communication where one host connects to another over TCP or UDP via some standard or otherwise known port number, using a known protocol, and then whatever services they want to provide each other is their private business. Network autoconfig and services discovery can and should be separate, IMO. (But then again, I might be a tiny grasshopper in network things.) /Jonas.
