A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory Services
Working Group of the IETF.                                                 

       Title     : Finding Stuff (Providing information to support service 
                   discovery)                                              
       Author(s) : R. Moats, M. Hamilton
       Filename  : draft-ietf-ids-discovery-00.txt
       Pages     : 12
       Date      : 06/04/1996

This document proposes a solution to the problem of finding information 
about which services are being offered at a particular Internet domain, 
based on deployment experience with the Netfind White Pages directory 
software.      
                                                            
This approach makes it possible to supply clients with more information 
than the DNS aliases which have been widely deployed in this role - notably
the port numbers being used by servers.  However, it is not without 
problems, and we have tried to take account of these.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-discovery-00.txt".
							
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
							
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.
							

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
