How does the spark app find the cores on the network?

Once it’s hooked up how does it find the cores when you open it if the ip has changed? Does the spark push it’s local ip to the cloud for it to grab? Is there some scan it’s doing? The reason I ask is I’d like to replicate this functionality, basically an app then when opened shows you all sparks on the network. Any thoughts on this?

There are some threads about SmartConfig. If you do a search, you’ll find them easily.

And for your other question. Once the Core knows its home network, it registers with the cloud, but doesn’t publish its own IP address. It’s rather that the Core and the App know where to find the cloud, so that the cloud needn’t bother to find the Core or the App - it just relays things.
