Identify UPNP SSDP packets from your network

The following script Written by nabe@abk (Credit to author) displays the UPNP Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) packets from your network.

 $ vim ssdp-test.pl 
#!/usr/bin/perl
################################################################################
# SSDP discover                         Written by nabe@abk / This is PDS
################################################################################
use strict;
use Socket;
 
my $CAST = '239.255.255.250';
my $PORT = 1900;
################################################################################
my $msg =<<SSDP;
M-SEARCH * HTTP/1.1
HOST: 239.255.255.250:1900
MAN: "ssdp:discover"
MX: 3
ST: ssdp:all
 
SSDP
# ST: ssdp:all
# ST: urn:schemas-upnp-org:device:MediaServer:1
# ST: urn:schemas-upnp-org:device:MediaRenderer:1
 
$msg =~ s/\r?\n/\r\n/g;
################################################################################
my $sock;
my $addr = pack_sockaddr_in($PORT, inet_aton($CAST));
socket($sock, AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
setsockopt($sock, SOL_SOCKET, SO_BROADCAST, 1);
bind($sock, pack_sockaddr_in(0, INADDR_ANY));
send($sock, $msg, 0, $addr);
 
while (1){
        my $buf;
        recv($sock, $buf, 65536, 0);
        print "$buf\n";
}

Now, run this script as,

$ perl ssdp-test.pl
$ perl ssdp-test.pl
