            DHCP Options for the Port Control Protocol (PCP)
                         draft-ietf-pcp-dhcp-13

Abstract

   This document specifies DHCP (IPv4 and IPv6) options to configure
   hosts with Port Control Protocol (PCP) server IP addresses.  The use
   of DHCPv4 or DHCPv6 depends on the PCP deployment scenarios.  The set
   of deployment scenarios to which use of DHCPv4 or DHCPv6 apply are
   outside the scope of this document.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this

1.  Introduction

   This document defines DHCPv4 [RFC2131] and DHCPv6 [RFC3315] options
   that can be used to configure hosts with PCP server [RFC6887] IP
   addresses.

   This specification assumes a PCP server is reachable with one or
   multiple IP addresses.  As such, a list of IP addresses can be
   returned in the DHCP PCP server option.

   This specification allows returning one or multiple lists of PCP
   server IP addresses.  This is used as a hint to guide the PCP client
   when determining whether to send PCP requests to one or multiple PCP
