What is Bonjour?

Say hello to Apple’s Support Page.

By Vinod

Bonjour is a support platform created by Apple for its customers. The support page helps with troubleshooting, setup and how-to information for new users.

Bonjour is also the name of Apple’s implementation of zero-configuration networking – a group of technologies that include service discovery, address assignment and hostname resolution.

The software comes built-in with Apple’s OS X and iOS operating systems.

Bonjour allows users to search for and discover services on a local network area. For instance, applications such as iTunes, Adobe, Skype and Safari can be found through Bonjour.  Moreover printers and file-sharing servers can also be located.

What were the legal difficulties that forced a name change?
