Instance Method


Starts a resolve process of a finite duration for the service.


- (void)resolveWithTimeout:(NSTimeInterval)timeout;



The maximum number of seconds to attempt a resolve. A value of 0.0 indicates no timeout and a resolve process of indefinite duration.


During the resolve period, the service sends netServiceDidResolveAddress: to the delegate for each address it discovers that matches the service parameters. Once the timeout is hit, the service sends netServiceDidStop: to the delegate. If no addresses resolve during the timeout period, the service sends netService:didNotResolve: to the delegate.
