Description:

Ad-Hoc Configuration Protocol

AHCP is an autoconfiguration protocol for IPv6 and dual-stack IPv6/IPv4 networks designed to be used in place of router discovery and DHCP on networks where it is difficult or impossible to configure a server within every link-layer broadcast domain, for example mobile ad-hoc networks. AHCP will automatically configure the IPv6 prefix, an IPv4 address for every host, the routing protocol, the DNS server and the NTP server. It is currently able to configure hosts for static routing, for use of the OLSR protocol, or for use of the Babel protocol. AHCP is extensible, so adding support for other routing protocols should be easy.
