A Revised 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-02.txt Pages : 12 Date : 10/28/1996 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. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-ietf-ids-discovery-02.txt". A URL for the Internet-Draft is: ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-discovery-02.txt Internet-Drafts directories are located at: o Africa: ftp.is.co.za o Europe: nic.nordu.net ftp.nis.garr.it o Pacific Rim: munnari.oz.a o US East Coast: ds.internic.net o US West Coast: ftp.isi.edu Internet-Drafts are also available by mail. Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-discovery-02.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. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
