This document describes a neighborhood discovery protocol (NHDP) for a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) [RFC2501]. This protocol uses a local exchange of HELLO messages so that each router can determine the presence of, and connectivity to, its 1-hop and symmetric 2-hop neighbors. Messages are defined and sent in packets according to the specification [RFC5444].
