This document specifies the Common Internet File System (CIFS) Browser Auxiliary Protocol Specification. This protocol is used by the master browser server and domain master browser server as defined in [MS-BRWS]. The master browser server uses this protocol to query configuration information for the domains from the domain master browser server. The protocol operation is stateless.
Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
