4.1.1 001: Definition of requirement

Some systems use DHCP or IPCP (PPP) to get an address assigned. DHCP in particular has a clear lease time, and at the end of the lease, a different IP address may be assigned.

The requirement is for FreeS/WAN to interact with address assignment facilities, adjust lifetime parameters appropriately, and to transparently change systems with the address change.
