For the automated discovery of targets on the network, most targets run a small program called the Controllab discovery daemon. The Controllab discovery daemon listens on port 1501 (UDP) for broadcast messages send by 20-sim 4C. When it receives a broadcast message from 20-sim 4C, it will reply with a message containing its IP-address and the target name and description as stored on the target.
The Controllab Discovery daemon is currently provided for:
•Linux (for testing purposes; non real-time)
For usage on other operating systems, contact Controllab Products B.V. for the available options.
The Controllab Discovery daemon uses port 1501 (TCP) for communication on the TCP/IP network.
