Overview of the Solaris Mobile IP Implementation

The mobility agent software incorporates home agent and foreign agent functionality. The Solaris Mobile IP software does not provide a client mobile node. Only the agent functionality is provided. Each network with mobility support should have at least one static (non-mobile) host running this software.

The following RFC functions are supported in the Solaris implementation of Mobile IP:

The base Mobile IP protocol (RFC 2002) does not address the problem of scalable key distribution and treats key distribution as an orthogonal issue. The Solaris Mobile IP software utilizes only manually configured keys, specified in a configuration file.

The following RFC functions are not supported in the Solaris implementation of Mobile IP:

The following functions are not supported in the Solaris implementation of Mobile IP:

  • The forwarding of multicast traffic or broadcast traffic by the home agent to the foreign agent for a mobile node that is visiting a foreign network

  • The routing of broadcast and multicast datagrams through reverse tunnels

  • Private care-of addresses or private home agent addresses

See the mipagent(1M) man page for additional information.
