This draft defines a new option in the Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) and the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to enable mobile hosts, that obey the mobile-IP specification under consideration in the mobile-IP working group (afterwards just called 'mobile hosts'), to configure themselves automatically. The option enables a mobile host to derive a mobile home address, and determine the subnet mask for the home network. Terminology defined in the mobile-IP draft specification and the DHCP specification applies here.
