1 Introduction

The Microsoft NetMeeting Protocol specifies a set of extensions to the T.120 protocols. This set includes extensions to the T.126 and T.127 protocols. In addition, the NetMeeting product in Windows uses the S20 protocol for application sharing as a replacement for T.128 functionality. NetMeeting also uses T.125 as a mechanism to transmit data for the Chat protocol. NetMeeting uses the Object Manager protocol to provide the mechanism to coordinate object creation, deletion, and synchronization between two or more nodes in an established session.

The Microsoft NetMeeting Protocol maintains backward compatibility with T.120, as specified in [T120]. Although these extensions use the same transport layer as the T.120 protocol, they do not impact the existing functionality of the T.120 protocol.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
