Hi all.

I am fairly new to Linux, and even newer to Linux programming. Anyways, was wondering how difficult it would be to broadcast a data packet on a regular interval and have only computers also running the script respond to it?

Basically, I want to be able to install a script on certain computers and have a poll broadcasts looking for other computers running the same script. The ones that do would inform the polling computer with an IP address.

Thanks for any help.
