Binding Discovery Service

Sorry if this has been asked before, but Im pulling my hair out over this.

Im currently writing my first binding, which I do plan to release to the community, and hopefully put together a step by step tutorial detailing the hoops Ive jumped through, and the issues Ive met along the way. I think ive read everything available, here, and on Eclipse.

My binding now works, but Im just left with the following two issues.

  1. My discovery service starts, but does not show in the scan for things section.
  2. My discovery requires a username and password passed to it, how do I do this?

Many thanks for any help.
