     112The server can optionally register as a service with [http://www.apple.com/macosx/technology/bonjour.html Bonjour] or [http://avahi.org/wiki/AboutAvahi Avahi], allowing easy lookup of the server from any machines on the local network that have [http://www.zeroconf.org/ Zeroconf] support.
     113
     114This requires the [http://o2s.csail.mit.edu/o2s-wiki/pybonjour pybonjour] package to be installed, which in turn requires the [http://python.net/crew/theller/ctypes/ ctypes] package for Python versions older than 2.5. On Mac OS X, the Zeroconf support works out of the box after a simple `easy_install pybonjour` incantation. On Linux, you'll need to install Bonjour, or (more commonly) Avahi and the `libavahi-compat-libdnssd1` library. On Windows, [http://developer.apple.com/networking/bonjour/download/ download] and install the Bonjour package Apple provides for Windows.
     115
     116when the prerequisites are in place, Zeroconf support in the Diva development server is enabled using the `-z` or `--zeroconf` command-line option.
