Multipath TCP [RFC6824] defines the ADD_ADDR option to allow a host to announce its addresses to the remote host. In this document we analyze some of the issues with the address advertisement technique defined [RFC6824] and propose some modifications to mitigate these problems. We also show that the reverse DNS could be an excellent alternative to advertise the stable addresses of a server.
