    Default Suggestion to help with the disappearing Mezzmo issues: watchdog

    While trying a competitor's product, I discovered that they seemed to have some kind of watchdog service. Having seen service stopping issues with other products than Mezzmo, I wonder if it wouldn't be a problem with Windows (or the UPNP protocol in general) itself, in which case Conceiva might be unable to fully resolve it.

    I like the idea: how about installing a watchdog service alongside Mezzmo that would try to connect to it every, say, 5 minutes? If the service doesn't respond in a timely manner, then it would automatically restart it. That would take care of the problem for everyone I'd say. Such a service would have a very low overhead.

    If the actual windows service stops, you can configure windows to automatically restart it. If it's a functional breakdown, then you need a watchdog.
