Host mobility is becoming an increasingly important issue because of the recent arrival of notebook and palm top computers, the development of wireless network interfaces and the implementation of global networks. This paper compares four recent proposals for mobile host protocols (MHPs) that are compatible with the TCP/IP protocol suite. A set of requirements for an MHP is proposed and it is observed that while all proposals perform the basic task none of the proposals entirely satisfy the requirements.
