Abstract

Hosts require procedures to simply and reliably identify if they have moved to a network to which they had been recently connected. In order to detect reconnection to a previously visited network, router and neighbor discovery messages are used to collect reachability and configuration information. This information is used to detect if the host has attached to a link for which it may still have valid address and other configuration information, and which it can use until it receives confirmation through either the Neighbor Discovery protocol or DHCPv6.

        Simple Procedures for Detecting Network Attachment in IPv6

Abstract

   Detecting Network Attachment allows hosts to assess if its existing    addressing or routing configuration is valid for a newly connected    network.  This document provides simple procedures for Detecting    Network Attachment in IPv6 hosts, and procedures for routers to    support such services.
