Title : Gateway and address autoconfiguration for IPv6 adhoc

Adhoc networks are formed by the spontaneous collaboration of
wireless nodes when no networking infrastructure is available. When
communication to the Internet is desired, one or more nodes must act
as gateways for the adhoc network. In this case, global addressing of
adhoc nodes is required. This document specifies a protocol (node
behaviour, information propagation, message format) which allows
nodes in an adhoc network to discover a gateway/prefix pair which is
used in order to build an IPv6 global address and, when necessary, to
maintain a default route towards the Internet.

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.
