[OLSR-users] IP autoconfiguration
Fri Apr 30 21:03:55 CEST 2004
The autoconfiguration does not rely on MAC addresses at all(well it is
used as a indintification in the intital traffic). Duplicate address
detection(DAD) is performed trough the entire MANET.
Hopefully a paper and a draft will be avalible sometime during this
summer. I'll get back to it as soon as stuff happens.
I really hope this code can be GPLed too ;)
With address autoconfiguration and security functionallity one just
needs some authentication/key management feature to have a complete
MANET "suite" IMO :)
