Rendezvous and Web Services

Networking Macs and PCs has always been somewhat of a hassle, often requiring configuration of file sharing settings on multiple machines. In an article for O’Reilly, Massimiliano Bigatti demonstrates the power of Rendezvous (aka Zeroconf) by writing a simple cross-platform file sharing application called iSafe that requires no configuration. While apparently written as a proof-of-concept application, iSafe is hopefully just one of many Rendezvous-enabled networking applications that will emerge as the technology proliferates.
