UPnP - (Universal Plug and Play)

UPnP refers to a collection of internet protocols for computers and handheld devices to communicate Peer-to-Peer information over IP networks. The name is derived from the concept of Plug and Play technology, or plugging a device into a computer for immediate use, since the UPnP protocols attempt to provide the same sort of usefulness over networks by using automatic installation, zero configuration, and scanning or detection functions.
