The goal of Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) is to enable
name resolution in scenarios in which conventional DNS name
resolution is not possible. LLMNR supports all current and future
DNS formats, types, and classes, while operating on a separate port
from DNS, and with a distinct resolver cache. Since LLMNR only
operates on the local link, it cannot be considered a substitute for
DNS. This memo provides information for the Internet community.
