[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goclient
Severity: wishlist

Just discussed an idea with Stefan on VideoChat. How about providing  
code in X2Go Client that tries to auto-detect local network broker  
setups automatically (zeroconf X2Go Client).

Approaches would be:

  o retrieve the domain's SRV records and check if special records for
    X2Go Broker setups can be found
  o use a similar approach like browsers use for wpad.dat
  o make this configurable in X2Go Client settings

2 other local network options are:

 o "zeroconf" (Avahi/Bonjour)
 o SSDP/UPnP.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avahi_(software)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Service_Discovery_Protocol

However, on Windows at least, firewalls are likely to block them.
