Title : Mobility Support in IPv6

This document specifies a protocol which allows nodes to remain
reachable while moving around in the IPv6 Internet. Each mobile node
is always identified by its home address, regardless of its current
point of attachment to the Internet. While situated away from its
home, a mobile node is also associated with a care-of address, which
provides information about the mobile node's current location. IPv6
packets addressed to a mobile node's home address are transparently
routed to its care-of address. The protocol enables IPv6 nodes to
cache the binding of a mobile node's home address with its care-of
address, and to then send any packets destined for the mobile node
directly to it at this care-of address. To support this operation,
Mobile IPv6 defines a new IPv6 protocol and a new destination option.
All IPv6 nodes, whether mobile or stationary can communicate with

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
