Beacon/AutoAnnounce Registry Key
The BEACON protocol service announces the JNIOR on boot by default using a
UDP broadcast. This also occurs whenever key configuration settings are
changed. There will be otherwise extended periods without any announcement.
This Registry Key may be used to actively monitor the health of the JNIOR.
The JNIOR will emit a periodic announcement every 30 seconds when this key
is set to enabled.
The BEACON broadcasts on UDP Port 4444. Each pack is minimal and while such
broadcasts are persistent they do not significantly impact overall network
