ULS server

(User Location Service server) A conferencing directory server on a TCP/IP network (intranet, Internet, etc.) that is used to identify participating users. When an audio or videoconferencing program is launched, it sends its user profile and current IP address to the ULS server, so that others can query the server and find out who is currently logged on. Microsoft renamed its ULS servers to ILS servers (Internet Locator Server), and Netscape Conference used DLS servers (Dynamic Lookup Service). See IP telephony.

The key to success when designing a virtual discovery space is having access to the data on the ILS server. At the most basic technical level, a discovery system is designed to communicate with the ILS through an application programming interface (API), which acts as a translator by securely sending and receiving data between the ILS and the discovery platform.
