The following information MUST be configurable:

  1. IP address(es).

  2. Address mask(s).

  3. A list of default gateways, with a preference level.

A manual method of entering this configuration data MUST be provided. In addition, a variety of methods can be used to determine this information dynamically; see the section on "Host Initialization" in [INTRO:1].


Some host implementations use "wiretapping" of gateway protocols on a broadcast network to learn what gateways exist. A standard method for default gateway discovery is under development.
