This document describes the Mobile IP protocol, the system to which the mobility features have been incorporated, the approach employed and the limitations of the implementation. The objective of this effort was to understand a TCP /IP stack and Mobile IP protocol and explore the impact of adding mobility to the TCP /IP stack. The Mobile IP is a proposed standard protocol that builds on the Internet Protocol (IP) by making mobility transparent to applications and higherlevel protocols like TCP. A test bed approach was used to add mobility features to a existing TCP /IP stack. The XINU operating system was used to provide fast, reliable target platform, while the C programming language on LINUX was used as the development platform. The implementation was tested in a wired environment by simulating mobility. Due to some of the minor features of Mobile IP being scoped out, and due to the inherent limitations of the target platform, there is scope for further work while the implementation provides a major build block of a Mobile Computing test bed.
