IPv4 link-local address allocator
zeroconf is an implementation of IPv4 link-local addresses (RFC3927)
which can be used for ad-hoc networks. Addresses are allocated from
the 169.254.0.0/16 range semi-randomly.
.
That means making it possible to take two laptop computers, and
connect them with a crossover Ethernet cable, and have them
communicate usefully using IP, without needing a man in a white lab
coat to set it all up for you. (from www.zeroconf.org)
