AHCP is an autoconfiguration protocol for IPv6 networks designed to be used in place of router discovery and DHCPv6 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, 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.
What's New in This Release:
· This release will survive interfaces going up or down or being dynamically created or deleted, which makes it easier to integrate with VPNs.
· It has the ability to run as a daemon, which simplifies the writing of init scripts.
