    This document describes the concept of Voice over IP Directory Services (voipDS) and explains voipDS protocol. voipDS is a central repository and a discovery service. The central repository contains the 'peer' connection information for the VOIP devices. Any VOIP user who wants to establish a peer-to-peer communication with other VOIP user, can query this service and get the peer connection information of other VOIP user. The VOIP device that initiates the connection can then automatically configure its system and have a peer-to-peer communication with other VOIP user's device. The voipDS protocol describes how the devices would interact with the repository to initiate the query, get the results and based on the results how to automatically configure the peer-to-peer connection.
