Title: METHOD FOR ALLOWING ONE DEVICE TO DETECT ANOTHER DEVICE
Abstract:
The present invention provides, in one embodiment, a method for detecting another device performed by a first device having a converged personal network service (CPNS) enabled entity. The method for detecting another device comprises the steps of: performing a procedure for a physical connection with a second device, if the CPNS enabled entity within the first device is set to a personal network entity (PNE) mode; and receiving a search request message from the second device, in order to prevent the duplication of information between the CPNS enabled entity and the second device. Preferably, said search request message can be used to obtain one or more pieces of information, among the mode information of one or more devices detected while the procedure for the physical connection is performed and the information on a network to which one or more said detected devices belong. Said received search request message can include one or more pieces of information among the information on the mode of the second device and the information on the network to which the second device belongs.
