I've been messing around with media server stuff again, I was wondering if there's a generally agreed-upon way to identify a DAAP server on the network over UPnP. Surely not everyone is counting on people manually punching in their IP address when looking for a server on the network, right?

DAAP is typically advertised on a network using the ZeroConf protocol (AKA: Bonjour)). This is pretty much standard since its what iTunes uses and iTunes is by far the biggest implementor of DAAP. I don't know of any way of advertising DAAP over UPnP.
