Chapter 8. Rendezvous

Ever wished that your computers and devices were all truly plug-and-play? After all, computers were designed to make your life easier, so why should you waste your time configuring your computers and devices so that they can communicate with each other on the network? In an ideal world, the computers and devices on your network should all be able to talk to each other without any intervention on your part from the moment you connect them.

In Mac OS X, Apple has built in a revolutionary technology called Rendezvous, which is designed to make your computers and devices truly plug-and-play. Using Rendezvous, you can create an instant network, thereby allowing communication with other devices on the network without having to hire your own system administrator or go through a complicated setup.
