Hey Clifford,

It solves the problem that anybody who wants to communicate with me can
do so on any interface I have, but without knowing the interfaces, I
don't know what I'm listening on :D

When I start up Omnis I want it to bind to an available port within a
range (that bit is working now) but then tell 'other' apps that it is
here and it is listening.

Yup, if such deamon supports that, I don't believe Omnis does when its
just running as an application
