Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are networks with self-organizing capabilities and without a fixed infrastructure. Wireless nodes communicate among themselves using multi-hop radio relaying, without requiring the packets to pass through a central access point or a base station. Routing is a function of speed and stability with which the nodes are able to acquire addresses. Efficient routing forms the basis of a fast and reliable communication network. In a highly mobile and infrastructure-less scenario, pre-configuration of addresses is not possible. Therefore node addresses need to be configured dynamically with minimum delay and packet loss. The main task of an address auto-configuration protocol is to manage the resource address space. It must be able to select, allocate, and assign a unique network address to an un-configured node. This paper proposes a new address auto-configuration protocol for mobile ad hoc networks. The scheme uses virtual address space for addressing new nodes joining a network. The aim is to map one point from virtual address sheet to exactly one new node. The reason for using the term "virtual" is that the whole corresponding address space is a 2D flat sheet and each point of this sheet is virtually mapped to a node in MANET. The protocol uses coordinate values for generating addresses.
