Overview Documents

This section provides overview documents for the SharePoint Products and Technologies Protocols documentation set. The overview documents supplement the technical documents by describing context, conceptual background, and inter-protocol relationship and interaction information.

Note The inter-document links in a PDF version of a technical document are functional only if all the cross-referenced documents are saved to the same local directory folder. An error message appears if you click a link that references a PDF document that is not located in the same folder (when viewing via your local hard drive) or is part of a different download (when viewing online). To save a complete set of PDF files to the same folder, download the SharePoint Products and Technologies Protocols .zip file. This is a large file and can take a few minutes to download.
