Mobile IP State Information

On shutdown, the mipagent daemon stores internal state information in /var/inet/mipagent_state. This event occurs only when the mipagent provides services as a home agent. This state information includes the list of mobile nodes that are being supported as a home agent, their current care-of addresses, and remaining registration lifetimes. This state information also includes the security association configuration with mobility agent peers. If the mipagent daemon is terminated for maintenance and restarted, mipagent_state is used to recreate as much of the mobility agent's internal state as possible. The intention is to minimize service disruption for mobile nodes that might be visiting other networks. If mipagent_state exists, it is read immediately after mipagent.conf every time mipagent is started or restarted.
