how to broadcast/multicast a service over the network for clients to
discover without any need for server IP?

how to let other clients discover the service from a server, without the
client requiring the IP address of the server, similar to DHCP IP
acquiring.

is there any other easy way?

Thanks,
Saravanan Sundaramoorthy
