Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper proposes a new server support approach to zero
configuration in-home networking, in order to reduce complicated and
labor-intensive home network configuration tasks. We show three
technical issues for zero configuration. Lack of a protocol or
technique addressing all issues simultaneously motivated us to design
a new approach based on (1) a two-stage autoconfiguration, (2) a UPnP
and HTTP-based autoconfiguration, and (3) extended UPnP services. The proposed approach can obtain software and settings from remote servers,
and updates/configures for devices. We evaluated a total autoconfiguration time of a prototype system, and the number of technical calls to a help desk collected during deployment of the prototype system. Over 40 settings are properly configured for diverse devices in 15 minutes and 25 seconds, while the ratio of the number of calls to number of new subscribers per month decreased from 14.9% to 8.2%, in which we delivered to new aDSL subscribers a user-side configuration tool and all-in-one modem as part of the system.
