In vehicle ad hoc networks (VANET), vehicles require to process a unique IP address to access the Internet. While the number of vehicles across the different service areas is increased, the time and loading for IP addressing are increased. Moreover, the conflict of IP addressing or the invalid IP address is also increased. Therefore, an IP address exchanging scheme (IPAES) in VANET is proposed in this paper. In IPAES, it passes its IP address to another vehicle and receives a new IP address by another vehicle directly. Hence, IPAES could reduce the time and loading of IP addressing. Simulation results showed that IPAES had less time and loading of IP addressing. The time and loading of IP addressing do not increased once the number of service areas or number of vehicles is increased. Moreover, the time and loading of IP addressing are decreased while the moving speed of vehicles is increased.
