Mobility management is an essential component in enabling mobile hosts to move seamlessly from one location to another while maintaining the packet routing efficiency between the corresponding hosts. One of the concerns raised with the IETF Mobile IP standard is the excessive signaling generated for highly mobile computers. This paper introduces a scheme to address that issue by manipulating the inherent client-server interaction which exists in most applications to provide the correspondent host with the current mobile host binding. To evaluate the performance of our scheme, we simulate typical Internet application sessions involving a mobile host and examine the signaling and routing costs. Results show a reduction in the overhead for delivering packets to the mobile host
