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 Filename : draft-ietf-dhc-dhcp-dns-04.txt Pages : 8 Date : 05/19/1997 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.

After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-ietf-dhc-dhcp-dns-04.txt". A URL for the Internet-Draft is: ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-dhcp-dns-04.txt Internet-Drafts directories are located at: o Africa: ftp.is.co.za o Europe: ftp.nordu.net ftp.nis.garr.it o Pacific Rim: munnari.oz.au o US East Coast: ds.internic.net o US West Coast: ftp.isi.edu Internet-Drafts are also available by mail. Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
