Hal, are we talking of the ntske port, 4460/tcp ?

As I understand it, NTS requires an out-of-band pre-arrangement.  It makes
no sense for me to probe random IP addresses for an NTS server to use, why
would I trust this?  So there would be an existing channel between the
operator and users of the NTS system.

I am still trying to work out the Principle of Least Surprise here, but I
think discoverability part is not required, only the fixing of the
(current) configurations.
