This paper presents the mechanism for service discovery in IPv6 mobile ad hoc networks, which uses the multicast DNS. When a user knows a service name and its transport protocol, he or she can find the IPv6 address and the port number of the service through this mechanism. The user can find the service information of multicast service as well as that of unicast service. The paper also suggests the architecture of name service system not only for service discovery but also for DNS name resolution.
