The Auto IP Protocol is designed to dynamically configure IPv4 addresses on a local network without requiring a server; unlike the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Auto IP uses address resolution protocol (ARP) for automatic IP address assignment and allocates addresses in the range of 169.254.1.0 through 169.254.254.255.
Note: Except for internal processing, the NetX Duo™ Auto IP is identical in the application, set-up, and running of an Auto IP session as the NetX™ Auto IP.
- The NetX Auto IP module supports the following features:
- Compliant with RFC3927 and related RFCs
- Uses ARP probes to check for address conflicts
- Uses the collision handler notification in NetX to detect an address already in use
- Registers a valid Auto IP address with the IP instance
- Provides high-level APIs for:
- Creating and deleting an Auto IP instance
- Starting and stopping the Auto IP thread task
- Specifying the network interface on which to run Auto IP
The module guide is targeted for SSP 1.2.0 and above and the SK-S7G2 Kit.
