Exceptions, if any, are noted below. If a service pack or Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) number appears with the product version, behavior changed in that service pack or QFE. The new behavior also applies to subsequent service packs of the product unless otherwise specified. If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.

Unless otherwise specified, the term MAY implies that the product does not follow the prescription.

<1> Section For an example of how Windows performs hash window and horizon negotiation, see [MS-FRS2] section

<2> Section The RDC library in Windows supports a maximum recursion depth of eight.

<3> Section If the similarity data appears in a protocol, the Windows-based client and server use the methods described in section to compute similarity data.

<4> Section FRS2 [MS-FRS2] may use several seed files, some of which are selected by finding the files that have the largest number of matching similarity traits. FRS2 also uses other techniques for finding seed files.

<5> Section 5.1: Windows Distributed File System (DFS) replication [MS-FRS2], the only Microsoft component using RDC at the time of this writing, computes a SHA-1 hash [FIPS180-2] over the contents of the file. And if it does not match, it transfers the file without using RDC.
