DRARP: Dynamic Reverse Address Resolution Protocol
Dynamic Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (DRARP), an extensions to the Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP), is used to acquire (or allocate) a protocol level address given the fixed hardware address for a host. Its clients are systems being installed or reconfigured, and its servers are integrated with other network administration services. The protocol, along with adjunct protocols as briefly described here, supports several common styles of "Intranet" administration including networks which choose not to support the simplified installation and reconfiguration features enabled by DRARP.
