Name Object

A name object contains the contact information of a partner. This information is composed of the following data elements that MUST be present on a Name object implementation:

Hostname: The NetBIOS name of the machine on which the partner is listening. For NetBIOS, see [NETBEUI], [RFC1001], and [RFC1002].

CID: The contact identifier (CID) of the partner.

Protocols: A COM_PROTOCOL structure representing a set of the RPC network protocols supported by the partner.

Note It is possible to implement the conceptual data defined in this section using a variety of techniques. An implementation is at liberty to implement such data in any way it pleases.
