4.1.1 Opening a Cloud

The Resolver, not yet a member of the clouds first joins the cloud by performing the following steps:

  • The Resolver creates a new entry. It does this by selecting a port and a set of four IPv6 Addresses or as many as the local system has, not exceeding four, to use for DRT communication.

  • The Resolver begins listening for incoming UDP messages on the chosen port, looking for messages sent to the chosen IPv6 Addresses.
