Yes, I think it's published as a StorageEndpoint with the protocol type
as the InterfaceName, if that's what you mean. (Potentially you could
have more than one, e.g. several gridftp servers.)

Hmm ... this reminds me of something I think I've asked before. Do you
use StorageEndpoint to publish *any* endpoint for a storage service, or
just the specifically storage-related things? For example, say you had a
monitoring service running on an SE - Nagios for example - and you
wanted to publish the endpoint for that. Would you publish it as a
StorageEndpoint or an Endpoint?
