Agent Advertisement Over Dynamic Interfaces

You can configure the implementation of the foreign agent to send advertisements over dynamically created interfaces. You have options to enable or disable limited unsolicited advertisements over the advertising interfaces. Dynamically created interfaces are defined as only those interfaces that are configured after the mipagent daemon starts. Advertisement over dynamic interfaces is useful for applications that support transient mobility interfaces. Moreover, by limiting unsolicited advertisement, network bandwidth might be saved.
