                     draft-ietf-dnssd-mdns-relay-01

Abstract

   This document complements the specification of the Discovery Proxy
   for Multicast DNS-Based Service Discovery.  It describes a
   lightweight relay mechanism, a Discovery Relay, which, when present
   on a link, allows remote clients, not attached to that link, to
   perform mDNS discovery operations on that link.
