Fixes bug in the M-Search packet generation
Comment 1 Marcelo Roberto Jimenez 2006-05-24 13:05:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Using ethereal, I found that the following packet was
beeing generated:

M-Search: * HTTP/1.1\r\n
MAN: "ssdp:discover"\r\n
MX: 3\r\n
ST: upnp:rootdevice

When in fact the original intention was this:

M-Search: * HTTP/1.1\r\n
MAN: "ssdp:discover"\r\n
MX: 3\r\n
ST: upnp:rootdevice

This caused unpredictable behaviour, some devices
answer, but some devices refuse to do so. The following
patch fixes this issue. I consider this a serious fix,
which should imply in a new minor version release.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:
The patch is probably good for FC-5 too.
This patch has been previously submitted to the original project here:

Also, the original project seems to have been abandoned by the developers, but
another project has forked, so attention should be paid to where are the next
versions comming from:
home page of the project: http://www.virtualworlds.de/upnp/
SourceForge home page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pupnp/

I don't understand what has gone behind the scenes, I am just reporting my
findings here. There are several other patches that have not been applied to the
software, which I am not quite aware of their gravity, but they seem to have
been applied to the new project.
