how to broadcast a service over the network for clients to discoverwithout any need for server IP

  1. how to broadcast/multicast a service over the network for clients to
    discover without any need for server IP?

    how to let other clients discover the service from a server, without the
    client requiring the IP address of the server, similar to DHCP IP
    acquiring.

    is there any other easy way?

    Thanks,
    Saravanan Sundaramoorthy
