 +====== MDP port sharing ======
 +MDP port sharing allows more than one [[MDP]] client process to listen on a single [[MDP port number]].  Every packet received on that port is forwarded to all listening processes, so that all have the opportunity to respond.
 +MDP port sharing was invented to enable the [[Cooee]] service discovery protocol, as part of the [[:content:activity:naf6]] grant.
