I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-ipv6-rfc2462bis-03.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the IP Version 6 Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration
	Author(s)	: S. Thomson, et al.
	Filename	: draft-ietf-ipv6-rfc2462bis-03.txt
	Pages		: 30
	Date		: 2004-7-21
This document specifies the steps a host takes in deciding how to
   autoconfigure its interfaces in IP version 6. The autoconfiguration
   process includes creating a link-local address and verifying its
   uniqueness on a link, determining what information can be
   autoconfigured (addresses, other information, or both), and in the
   case of addresses, whether they can be obtained through the stateless
   mechanism, the stateful mechanism, or both. This document defines the
   process for generating a link-local address, the process for
   generating global addresses via stateless address autoconfiguration,
   and the Duplicate Address Detection procedure. The details of
   autoconfiguration using the stateful protocol is specified in RFC
   3315 and RFC 3736.

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.
