Title : Dynamic Configuration of IPv4 link-local addresses
Author(s) : S. Cheshire
Filename : draft-ietf-zeroconf-ipv4-linklocal-01.txt
Pages : 14

As the Internet Protocol continues to increase in popularity as a

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
