A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
Title : Virtual Home Agent Reliability Protocol (VHAR)

Current specification of Mobile-IPv6  does not provide Home Agent
Reliability and Load Balancing in the Home Network . The aim of
this draft is to introduce Virtual Home Agent Reliability Protocol as
the solution. In this protocol multiple Home Agents and Recovery Home
Agents coexist on the same subnet and share the same IP Address. Only
one of them is active at a time and serves the Mobile Node. The Home
Agent failure and failover mechanisms are completely transparent to
the Mobile Node which is required for minimal service interruption
time. This protocol does not introduce any new Mobile-IPv6 message
over the air interface and thus helps reducing the overall overhead.

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
