A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3059 Title: Attribute List Extension for the Service Location Protocol Author(s): E. Guttman Status: Standards Track Date: February 2001 Mailbox: Erik.Guttman@sun.com Pages: 6 Characters: 11208 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-guttman-svrloc-attrlist-ext-05.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3059.txt The Service Location Protocol, Version 2 (SLPv2) provides a mechanism for a service to be discovered in a single exchange of messages. This exchange of messages does not presently include any of the service's attributes. This document specifies a SLPv2 extension which allows a User Agent (UA) to request a service's attributes be included as an extension to Service Reply messages. This will eliminate the need for multiple round trip messages for a UA to acquire all service information. This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol. This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
