When network techniques advance dramatically, network applications merge broadly into the daily lives of people. More electrical appliances now contain tiny embedded systems that support network interfaces within the home due to the great advances in IC design and semiconductor device manufacturing. Remotely controlling an information appliance (IA) in a home network has become a major request for nowadays consumers. IPv6 plays an important role because of the enormous number of device network interfaces needed in the home network around the world. In our work, a protocol that automatically integrates the user interface and command transmission is proposed. The proposed method also allows IA to acquire its domain name automatically without manual configuration. Through this initial automatic message communication protocol, users can "plug and play" the IA device with its unique ID.
