I have a question regarding the Autoconfig protocol and oscbonjour. What is the difference between the two? Does the autoconfig protocol require the oscbonjour? What will the autoconfig actually do with the settings? And can I override the settings done by autoconfig manually? Thanks a lot for your input.
Question on Autoconfig protocol and oscbonjour
The autoconfig protocol is the simple way that is used by the monome applications to find the monome routers. It is also used to negotiate how the monome routers will be able to connect. This protocol makes easier the configuration for the user especially when there is more than one application is involved in that process.
Oscbonjour on the other hand refers to a specific implementation of Bonjour which has been designed for the Open Sound Control devices that include the monome. Bonjour has been designed to work on many platforms that are available, and it does not depend on the autoconfig protocol.
