1.1 Glossary

This document uses the following terms:

client: A computer on which the remote procedure call (RPC) client is executing.

Information Access Service (IAS): Each device that implements the set of infrared protocols, specifically [IRLMP], maintains an information base so that one IrDA device can discover what services another IrDA-compliant device offers, as well as gain information about the device itself. This information is held in a number of objects in the information base and is accessed by communicating with the IAS.

IrOBEX: An acronym for the IrDA-defined Infrared Object Exchange protocol, as specified in [IROBEX].

Link Service Access Point Selector (LSAP-SEL): A selector that distinguishes between LSAPs within a station. Legal values for an LSAP-SEL lie in the range 0x00–0x7F. With the exception of the special LSAP-SEL values 0x00 (LM-IAS), 0x70 (Connectionless Data service), 0x71-0x7E (reserved), and 0x7F (reserved for broadcast and currently not implemented), the assignment of LSAP-SEL values is arbitrary. See [IRLMP] section 3.1.2 for more details.

server: A computer on which the remote procedure call (RPC) server is executing.

TinyTP: Infrared Data Association Tiny Transport Protocol, as specified in [IRTTP].

universally unique identifier (UUID): A 128-bit value. UUIDs can be used for multiple purposes, from tagging objects with an extremely short lifetime, to reliably identifying very persistent objects in cross-process communication such as client and server interfaces, manager entry-point vectors, and RPC objects. UUIDs are highly likely to be unique. UUIDs are also known as globally unique identifiers (GUIDs) and these terms are used interchangeably in the Microsoft protocol technical documents (TDs). Interchanging the usage of these terms does not imply or require a specific algorithm or mechanism to generate the UUID. Specifically, the use of this term does not imply or require that the algorithms described in [RFC4122] or [C706] must be used for generating the UUID.

Windows UUID: The IrDA UUID used by this profile to identify itself to the IrOBEX server in the WHO header. The Windows UUID (16 Byte) value is b9c7fd98-e5f8-11d1-bfce-0000f8753890.

MAY, SHOULD, MUST, SHOULD NOT, MUST NOT: These terms (in all caps) are used as defined in [RFC2119]. All statements of optional behavior use either MAY, SHOULD, or SHOULD NOT.
