The method of the present invention includes a first step of, if a first mobile node belonging to a first network moves into and participates in a second network, detecting that the first mobile node has moved; a second step of securing a route from the first mobile node to a gateway of the second network and requesting network configuration information; and a third step of receiving an available network address allocated by the gateway and changing the network configuration information of the first mobile node.
Abstract: An ash scoop which remains out of the water during most of its operation. The ash scoop has a retaining and a nonretaining configuration. It moves along a track downward into the pit while poised in its nonretaining configuration. Once in the pit, it moves to its retaining position to grab debris within the pit. It then moves back out of the pit along the track until it reverts to its nonretaining configuration to dump the ashes dragged out of the pit.
