    network printer discovery

      I am an experienced C# programmer, but am new to Java.

      I have been tasked with finding all the printers on a network - the phrase used in my assignment was to do an broadcast. I am to receive the all the ip addresses that respond to my broadcast, then interrogate each machine to find out if this is a ip I care about. I have a given port.

      I have worked on this in fits and starts, trying to adapt examples I have found that look close - but I have found myself completely confused, and just don't know where to go. I would be most appreciative if someone could point me in the right direction to start this project!

      Thank you in advance!
