What Is Bonjour?


Bonjour is a network discovery technology developed by Apple, Inc. It allows computers and printers to automatically find and connect to each other's services using a new communication protocol, saving time and simplifying tasks such as file sharing and setting up printers.

Apple computers running newer versions of Mac OS X support Bonjour as a capability embedded in various network applications such as the Web browser (Safari), iTunes, and Back To My Mac. Additionally, Apple provides a Bonjour service for Microsoft Windows PCs as a free software download on apple.com. The technology is based on Internet Protocol (IP), allowing it to work with both wired and wireless networks.
