        Title : Location Information Server (LIS) Discovery using IP address and Reverse DNS

   The residential gateway is a device that has become an integral part
   of home networking equipment. Discovering a Location Information
   Server (LIS) is a necessary part of acquiring location information
   for location-based services. However, discovering a LIS when a
   residential gateway is present poses a configuration challenge,
   requiring a method that is able to work around the obstacle presented
   by the gateway.

   This document describes a solution to this problem. The solution
   provides alternative domain names as input to the LIS discovery
   process based on the network addresses assigned to a Device.
