1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

  • Clients discover the URI of the WDP by using the Autodiscover Publishing and Lookup Protocol [MS-OXDSCLI].

  • From the WDP URI, clients construct the manifest URI and use the HTTP /1.1 protocol [RFC2616] to retrieve the manifest file.

  • Based on data in the manifest, clients use the Offline Address Book (OAB) Retrieval File Format to retrieve and consume OAB data files that are generated as described in [MS-OXOAB].

  • This file format relies on the HTTP 1.1 protocol, as described in [RFC2616], to deliver the manifest and data OAB files from the server to the client. It also relies on HTTPS , as described in [RFC2818], for data protection services.

For conceptual background information and overviews of the relationships and interactions between this and other protocols, see [MS-OXPROTO].
