[Freedombox-discuss] Configuring Mobile Devices

If you are talking about the mobile device being on the local network  
with the freedom box, then you can use Multicast DNS Service Discovery  
(aka mDNS-SD aka zeroconf aka Bonjour aka Rendezvous) to advertise and  
find services that machines offer.  So things like IMAP, SMTP, CalDav,  
Jabber/XMPP, SMB, DAAP, HTTP, etc. can be advertized with mDNS-SD.

Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a more  
direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in practice,  
it can change entire economies.     - Amy Smith
