 A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the Dynamic Host Configuration 
 Working Group of the IETF.                                                

       Title     : Interaction between DHCP and DNS                        
       Author(s) : Y. Rekhter

DHCP provides a powerful mechanism for IP host autoconfiguration.  
However, the autoconfiguration provided by DHCP does not include 
updating DNS, and specifically updating the name to address and 
address to name mappings maintained by DNS.                                                

This document specifies how DHCP clients and servers should use 
the Dynamic DNS Updates mechanism to update the DNS name to address 
and address to name mapping, so that the mappings for DHCP clients 
would be consistent with the IP addresses that the clients 
acquire via DHCP.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-dhcp-dns-04.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net 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 Internet-Draft.
