Title : Host Name Resolution Protocol (HNRP) for IPv6 nodes
Author(s) : G. Sinniah et al.
Filename : draft-gopinath-host-name-resolution-
Pages : 13

This document describes a new method, which will automatically
acquire the host name of active IPv6 nodes and register it to the
local Domain Name System (DNS) server. Active IPv6 nodes are nodes
that are connected to a network.
Our proposed new protocol, which is called Host Name Resolution
Protocol (HNRP) , will automatically learn some useful
information from all the IPv6 nodes, such as the host name and the
IP address. All the information will be kept by HRRP and the host
name together with the IPv6 address will be added to the DNS. This
will be implemented without the need for any changes at the clients'
The objective of this document is to specify the new Host Name
Resolution Protocol and also the algorithm used in the protocol.

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
