Multiprotocol systems can be an important tool for achieving interoperability.As the number of protocols available on such systems grows, there is anincreasing need for support mechanisms that enable users to effectively accessthese protocols. Of particular importance is the need to determine which ofseveral protocols to use for a given communication task. In this work, wepropose architectures for a protocol discovery system that uses protocol feedback mechanisms to determine which protocols are supported. We describe theissues related to protocol discovery and present feedback mechanisms necessaryto support discovery. We present a prototype implementation of a discoverysystem that supports next generation IP protocols.
