Unicast Response Mode

When the PointToPointResponse boolean attribute is true, the discovery client specifies unicast mode in its discovery requests. The responder will create a datagram socket for sending the response only to the discovery client. As shown in the following diagram, each responder will send its response directly back to the discovery client. The datagram socket used by each responder is bound to its local host address; this cannot be customized.
