MCHPdetect

The #twatch acquires an IP address automatically using the DHCP server on your network. It displays the IP address on the LCD screen, but it also sends an announcement packet to every computer on the network. The packet is directed to port 30303 at the broadcast address. Microchip provides a small Windows utility called MCHPDetect that displays these packets, source code is available in the TCP/IP stack download.
