Reactive Address Allocation and Duplicate Address Detection Techniques in MANET
A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) consists of a set of identical mobile nodes communicating with each other via wireless links. The network's topology may change rapidly and unpredictably. Typically, dynamic configuration in a wired network is accomplished by using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). In mobile ad hoc networks, however, there is no fixed infrastructure and nodes do not have access to a centralized server to acquire IP addresses. Further, due to node mobility, network partitions and merges are frequent occurrences. Such events create the possibility of duplicate addresses within the network.
