In many remote access scenarios, a mechanism for making the remote host
appear to be present on the local corporate network is quite useful.
This may be accomplished by assigning the host a 'virtual' address from
the corporate network, and then tunneling traffic via Ipsec from the
host's ISP-assigned address to the corporate security gateway. The
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides for such remote host
configuration. This draft explores the requirements for host
configuration in IPSEC tunnel mode, and describes how the DHCP protocol
may be leveraged for configuration in this case.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
