1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols
This protocol requires an Autodiscover server and an Autodiscover client that implement the Autodiscover Publishing and Lookup Protocol, as specified in [MS-OXDSCLI]. This protocol relies on HTTPS, as specified in [RFC2818], for data protection services and it relies on [RFC1034] for DNS services. It also relies on [MS-ADTS] and [RFC1823] for the service connection point object and LDAP, respectively.
The following data flow diagram shows a client querying the directory and DNS for an Autodiscover server, and the server publishing its location in the directory and DNS.
For conceptual background information and overviews of the relationships and interactions between this and other protocols, see [MS-OXPROTO].
