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 : DHCP Relay Agent Information Option Author(s) : M. Patrick Filename : draft-ietf-dhc-agent-options-01.txt Pages : 11 Date : 06/06/1997 Newer high-speed public Internet access technologies call for a high-speed modem to have a LAN attachment to one or more user hosts. It is advantageous to use DHCP to assign user host IP addresses in this environment, but a number of security and scaling problems arise with such "public" DHCP use. This draft calls for the definition of a "DHCP Relay Agent Information" option that is appended to a DHCP packet forwarded from a client to a server by a relay agent. The Server may or may not use the information in the the Relay Agent Information option; in either case, it echoes back the option verbatim in server-to-client replies. The "Relay Agent Information" option contains sub-options that convey information known by the relay agent. The initial sub-options are defined for a relay agent that is co-located in a public circuit access unit. These include a "circuit ID" for the incoming circuit and a "remote ID" which provides a trusted identifier for the remote high-speed modem. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP.

Send a message to: email@example.com. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-agent-options-01.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.
