SLP Server Detection (UDP)

info Nessus Plugin ID 23778


The remote server supports the Service Location Protocol.


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.
