A method and system for delayed registration of a remote protocol for communicating between a client computer system and a server computer system. The server computer system has a communications process that registers a plurality of protocols. When the client process needs to communicate with the server process, it sends a request to the communications process along with an indication of the protocols that it supports. The communications process selects a protocol that is supported by both the client computer system and the server computer system and directs the server process to register that protocol. The communication process provides the server endpoint for that protocol to the client process which can then communicate directly with the server process.
