Bonjour for Windows


Posted by Edwin Soto Categories: PC / Laptop, Software


Bonjour Windows

The famous simple networking system from the Mac OS is now available for Windows. This easy file/Internet/printer sharing software has been a staple for Macs everywhere.  Great for those of us that aren’t good at figuring out the routers and printers on our networks, or those who just want to feel as cool as a Mac user should download this for their Windows-based PC.

Now anyone using a Windows PC can take advantage of the effortlessness of Bonjour for free. The Bonjour Setup Wizard makes setting up a printer under Windows as easy as Mac OS X (we can’t make it as beautiful, unfortunately). Bonjour for Windows includes a plug-in for Internet Explorer, so you can setup a Bonjour-enabled device without knowing its IP address. You can even print to printers connected over USB to Airport Extreme Base Station or Airport Express. If you’re an Open Source enthusiast, you will be able to download the Bonjour source code to create software for virtually any platform.

For networking printers and stuff without having to do anything really. Tivo uses it to connect their HMO with computers. 

By the way this is Rendezvous, renamed because some company sued Apple over the name.
