This draft defines a DHCP-based scheme to enable dynamic discovery of a Local Mobility Anchor (LMA) in Proxy Mobile IPv6. Existing Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) options are used allowing a Mobile Access Gateway (MAG) to request the LMA's IP address, Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), or home network prefix via the DHCP response.
