Most routing protocols in MANET use IP addresses as one of the most important routing information. To implement the routing protocol of MANET, the IP assignment in MANET should be solved. Allocating IP addresses is one of current key issues in the MANET, due to the absence of a centralized agent server. Previous methods require a large address space or can not use all the IP addresses of the given IP address space. For that reason, many IP addresses remain unused. To resolve this, we propose an IP address assignment protocol that uses the contiguous IP address assignment strategy without unused IP addresses. Simulations perform on ns-2 and confirm the viability of our protocol.
