Yeah it's basically a SOAP client/server setup, with some multicast UDP
thrown in for service location and discovery.  I've abandoned some
twisted python code[1] for both server and client side stuff because the
hardware was a piece of junk, but someone else has picked it up and
started to do something useful[2] with it.

There are a bunch of documents you can download from the uPnP forum
about it which might provide some insight but I mostly used ethereal and
figured out how things worked from there.
