1.3 Overview

 

The Desired State Configuration Pull Model Protocol is used to register a client, to get the configuration and the module from the server, and to report back some elements to the server.

The protocol depends on HTTP for the transfer of all protocol messages, including the transfer of the binary data. In this specification, the entity that initiates the HTTP connection is referred to as the client, and the entity that responds to the HTTP connection is referred to as the server. With the Desired State Configuration Pull Model Protocol, binary data flows from the server to the client.
