Service Location Protocol (SLP) Enhancements
| Columbia University
We are working on enhancements to the
Service Location Protocol
(SLP), including mesh-enhancement (mSLP), remote discovery,
preference filters, global attributes, and SLP URL. We also use SLP for the
Internet telephony gateway location.
Here are introductions to SLP and
mSLP. This project supported in part
by NSF and
- Remote Service Discovery in the Service Location Protocol (SLP) via DNS SRV, RFC 3832, July 2004.
- Mesh-enhanced Service Location Protocol (mSLP), RFC 3528, April 2003.
- Select and Sort Extensions for the Service Location Protocol (SLP), RFC 3421, November 2002.
