3 Protocol Details

The Message Queuing (MSMQ): Message Queuing Binary Protocol is often described as a communication between a "client" and "server"; however, for the purpose of this section the terms "local host" and "remote/destination host" are used to refer to these roles, respectively. Before a protocol session is initialized as specified in section, these roles are referred to as "initiator" and "acceptor", respectively. After a protocol session is initialized, the protocol behaves in a typical peer-to-peer mode where either participant sends and receives messages over the established protocol session. The participant sending a message is termed the "sender", while the participant receiving a message is termed the "receiver".
