Tcpip packet size

From MLDonkey
Jump to: navigation, search

The size of the header of a TCP/IP packet on your connection. %%% _IMHO, the name should be changed to something more accurate, like tcp_packet_overhead /Pango_

ppp adds 14 bytes sometimes, so modify to take that into account.

_How can you find out if your ppp needs 14 added ? How does this change the way mld communicates ? Could someone give info on this ? /Randall_

This is a handy test for finding out what your overhead is --

AFAIK the linux tcp/ip stack timestamps its packets by default, which adds 12 bytes to the 40 byte header. You can change this by doing: echo \"0\" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps
