* Bugs: http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?atid=5921&group_id=1513

== DESCRIPTION:

An implementation of the UPnP 1.0 protocol for devices, services and control
points. UPnP allows automatic configuration of networked devices. It is an
open protocol including device discovery using SSDP and service control using
SOAP.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Client support:
* Discovers UPnP devices and services via SSDP, see UPnP::SSDP
* Creates a SOAP RPC driver for discovered services, see
UPnP::Control::Service
* Creates concrete UPnP device and service classes that may be extended with
utility methods, see UPnP::Control::Device::create,
UPnP::Control::Service::create and the UPnP-IGD gem.
* Server support:
* Easy creation of device and service skeletons from UPnP specifications
* Advertises UPnP devices and services via SSDP
* Creates a SOAP RPC server for each service
* Mounts services in a single WEBrick server
* Easy creation of executables for devices
* Eventing not implemented

== SYNOPSIS:

See UPnP::Device for instructions on creating a UPnP device.

See UPnP::Service for instructinos on creating a UPnP service.

Print out information about UPnP devices nearby:

upnp_discover

Listen for UPnP resource notifications:

upnp_listen

Search for root UPnP devices and print out their description URLs:

require 'UPnP/SSDP'

resources = UPnP::SSDP.new.search :root
locations = resources.map { |resource| resource.location }
puts locations.join("\n")

Create a UPnP::Control::Device from the first discovered root device:

require 'UPnP/control/device'

device = UPnP::Control::Device.create locations.first

Enumerate actions on all services on the device:

service_names = device.services.map do |service|
service.methods(false)
end

puts service_names.sort.join("\n")

Assuming the root device is an InternetGatewayDevice with a WANIPConnection
service, print out the external IP address for the gateway:

wic = device.services.find { |service| service.type =~ /WANIPConnection/ }
puts wic.GetExternalIPAddress

== REQUIREMENTS:

* UPnP devices

== INSTALL:

sudo gem install UPnP
