Asterisk service discovery support


I am currently trying to develop an app on android that can automatically connect to asterisk and I need a way to scan the network for the asterisk ip.

I tried using the androids network service discovery, but I couldn’t find asterisk with it.
I have also found posts about the bonjour(apple) and zeroconf from astmasters but any associated links for download were dead. Also the last posts on this topic seem to be 2005. … nf+Support

Can anyone tell me where to start and how to set up asterisk? Or whether the names have changed and I am searching for the wrong thing?.


Asterisk doesn’t present itself to Avahi, so you’ll need to write an Avahi service that points to Asterisk.
