Lan Peer Scanner

LAN Peer Scanner searches your local area network (LAN) by enumerating all IPs via UDP unicast for peers that have the same plugin installed for data you need. If one or more such peers are found, it automatically downloads from this peer directly via LAN, resulting in a usually much higher download rate.

This is meant as an alternative to the built-in lan peer finder plugin which automatically finds all azureus instances within the local broadcasting segment via udp multicast in case multicast is not available.
