1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

This protocol uses the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) Extensions protocol described in [MS-RTP] and the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) described in [MS-RTP] as its local transport protocol. This protocol is the transport protocol for the Remote Desktop Protocol: Basic Connectivity and Graphics Remoting Specification described in [MS-RDPBCGR] and the Remote Desktop Protocol: Multiparty Virtual Channel Extension described in [MS-RDPEMC]. Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a stream protocol with no boundaries, which means that RDP defines the packet length inside the RDP packet ([MS-RDPBCGR] section 2) and the next RDP packet can immediately follow the previous RDP packet.

RTP is required to use TCP as its transport protocol when transporting payloads for this protocol. For details, see [MS-RTP] section 1.4 for other dependent protocols.
