Windows Server Protocols Documentation

Windows Server Protocol Documentation includes protocols that are implemented in the Windows Server operating system and are used to communicate with other Microsoft server software products.

Overview and Reference Materials




[MS-DOCO]: Windows Protocols Documentation Roadmap

Provides an overview of the Windows protocols documentation set. It provides a high-level roadmap for finding and navigating the documentation set and describes the content for each type of document.

[MS-NETOD]: Microsoft .NET Framework Protocols Overview Document

Provides an overview of the .NET Framework protocols that map to the .NET Framework distributed technologies that enable network communications. This includes the protocols implemented in the Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), identity and directory services, data access, ASP.NET, and .NET Remoting technologies of the .NET Framework.

[MS-WMOD]: Windows Management Protocols Overview

Provides an overview of the functionality and relationship of the Windows Management protocols, which are specified in [MS-WMI], [MS-WSMAN], [MS-WSMV], [MS-ODASM], and [MS-PSRP]. The Windows Management protocols provide the ability to control settings and to collect data for a set of client and server computers. These protocols enable a computer to query another system or computer and to perform administrative operations to monitor, troubleshoot, and conduct hardware and software inventories in remote computers. The Windows Management Instrumentation Encoding Version 1.0 [MS-WMIO] is an integral part of the capabilities of the Windows Management Instrumentation Protocol; it specifies a binary data encoding format that is used by this protocol for network communication.

[MS-WPO]: Windows Protocols Overview

Provides a conceptual overview of the protocols implemented in Windows and a roadmap to their protocol specifications. It provides conceptual background on Windows concepts and relationships across technology-specific protocol sets as appropriate.


[MS-GLOS]: Windows Protocols Master Glossary

Provides the definitions for terms that are used in the protocol documentation.

[MS-REF]: Windows Protocols Master Reference

Provides the normative and informative references used in the protocol documentation.

Technical Specifications



[MC-FPSEWM]: FrontPage Server Extensions: Website Management Specification

Specifies the FrontPage Server Protocol Extensions, which is a set of server extensions that can be used to augment a basic HTTP server. These extensions provide file server functionality similar to WebDAV, enabling a Web site to be presented as a file share.

[MC-SMP]: Session Multiplex Protocol Specification

Specifies the Session Multiplex Protocol, which provides session management capabilities between a database client and a database server. This protocol enables multiple logical client connections to connect to a single server over a single physical connection.

[MC-SQLR]: SQL Server Resolution Protocol Specification

Specifies the SQL Server Resolution Protocol, which facilitates connectivity to a database server.

[MS-AZMP]: Authorization Manager (AzMan) Policy File Format

Specifies the structure of the XML file format used to preserve policy settings for Microsoft Authorization Manager (AzMan). The structure of the AzMan XML policy format is documented in order to enable interoperability by implementers.

[MS-CER2]: Corporate Error Reporting V.2 Protocol

Specifies the Corporate Error Reporting V.2 Protocol, which enables enterprise computing sites to manage all error reporting information within the organization.

[MS-FSVCA]: File Set Version Comparison Algorithms

Specifies the File Set Version Comparison Algorithms, which is used by the Enterprise Client Synchronization Protocol to build and serialize a compact representation of version state across a data set consisting of files and directories.

[MS-HTTPE]: Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Extensions

Specifies the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Extensions, which extend the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and deal with internationalization of host names and query strings.

[MS-NSPI]: Name Service Provider Interface (NSPI) Protocol Specification

Specifies the Name Service Provider Interface (NSPI) Protocol, which provides messaging clients with a way to access and manipulate addressing data stored by a server. This protocol consists of an abstract data model and a single RPC call interface to manipulate data in that model.

[MS-ODATA]: Open Data Protocol (OData) Specification

Specifies the Open Data (OData) Protocol. This protocol enables applications to expose data, by using common Web technologies, and by means of a data service that can be consumed by clients within corporate networks and across the Internet.

[MS-POP3]: NT LAN Manager (NTLM) Authentication: Post Office Protocol - Version 3 (POP3) Extension

Specifies the Post Office Protocol - Version 3 (POP3) Extension by describing the use of NTLM Authentication (see [MS-NLMP]) by the Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) to facilitate client authentication to a Windows POP3 server. POP3 specifies a protocol for the inquiry and retrieval of electronic mail.

[MS-PSRDP]: PowerShell Remote Debugging Protocol

Specifies the PowerShell Remote Debugging Protocol (PSRDP).This protocol extends the existing PowerShell Remoting Protocol (PSRP) specified in [MS-PSRP] to support debugging over a remote session.

[MS-RMSI]: Rights Management Services (RMS): ISV Extension Protocol Specification

Specifies the Rights Management Services (RMS): ISV Extension Protocol, a SOAP protocol that is used to communicate information between applications and RMS servers directly without using the RMS client.

[MS-SSEAN]: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) AUTH Extension for SPNEGO

Specifies the SMTP Service Extension for Negotiate Authentication, which enables SMTP clients to authenticate to SMTP servers by using the Simple and Protected Negotiate (SPNEGO) mechanism.

[MS-TDS]: Tabular Data Stream Protocol Specification

Specifies the Tabular Data Stream Protocol, which facilitates interaction with a database server and provides for authentication and channel encryption negotiation; specification of requests in SQL (including Bulk Insert); invocation of a stored procedure, also known as a Remote Procedure Call (RPC); returning of data; and Transaction Manager Requests. It is an application layer request/response protocol.

[MS-WSUSAR]: Windows Server Update Services: Administrative API Remoting Protocol (WSUSAR)

Specifies the Windows Server Update Services: Administrative API Remoting Protocol (WSUSAR), which enables communication between the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) management API and a WSUS server.
