Synopsis :

The remote server supports the Service Location Protocol.

Description :

The remote server understands Service Location Protocol (SLP), a
protocol that allows network applications to discover the existence,
location, and configuration of various services in an enterprise
network environment. A server that understands SLP can either be a
service agent (SA), which knows the location of various services, or a
directory agent (DA), which acts as a central repository for service
location information.
