1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

This protocol is dependent on Microsoft RPC, as specified in [MS-RPCE], and uses the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) as the protocol transport.

In some cases, a client can use the Windows Remote Registry Protocol [MS-RRP] or the Service Control Manager Remote Protocol [MS-SCMR] to query server state. This is done together with issuing methods in the ClusAPI Protocol.
