A New 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 : An Inter-server Protocol for DHCP Author(s) : R. Droms, K. Kinnear Filename : draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-alt-00.txt Pages : 53 Date : 04/14/1997 The DHCP protocol is designed to allow for multiple DHCP servers, so that reliability of DHCP service can be improved through the use of redundant servers. To provide redundant service, all of the DHCP servers must be configured with the same information about assigned IP addresses and parameters; i.e., all of the servers must be configured with the same bindings. Because DHCP servers may dynamically assign new addresses or configuration parameters, or extend the lease on an existing address assignment, the bindings on some servers may become out of date. The DHCP inter-server protocol provides an automatic mechanism for synchronization of the bindings stored on a set of cooperating DHCP servers. This draft is a direct extension of draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-00.txt, but has been renamed draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-alt-00.txt since an alternative proposal (also a direct extension of draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-00.txt but in a different direction) exists named draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-01.txt. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-alt-00.txt". A URL for the Internet-Draft is: ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-alt-00.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: email@example.com. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-interserver-alt-00.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.
