Subject Re: Lookup Service Discovery using DNS?
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2010 03:36:51 GMT
 From http://www.dns-sd.org/ServiceTypes.html

The primary historical list of DNS SRV (RFC 2782 
<http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2782.txt>) service type names for existing 
protocols with well-known port numbers is given in the IANA list of 
assigned port names and numbers 
<http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers>. *However, that list does 
not include any information about the defined DNS-SD TXT keys, and that 
list includes only protocols that have fixed well-known port numbers, 
which is unfortunate, because one of the big benefits of DNS SRV is that 
it obviates the need for fixed port numbers in most cases.

*Sounds perfect for traversing firewalls doesn't it?  We need to perform 
modifications as suggested by Sim to divorce Jini from TCP.
