RFC 793, "Transmission Control Protocol", September 1981

Area Assignment: tsv

Errata ID: 1566
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical

Section 3.9 says:

OPEN Call
LISTEN STATE
      Data associated with SEND may be sent with SYN segment or
      queued for transmission after entering ESTABLISHED state.  The
      urgent bit if requested in the command must be sent with the data
      segments sent as a result of this command.

It should say:

OPEN Call
LISTEN STATE
      --delete this--

Notes:

This is an OPEN call. There is no data associated with a SEND.
BTW, What WND to set in the SYN segment? Set RCV.WND=1?
--VERIFIER NOTES--
This is "may" and does not produce incorrect protocol behavior, so there is no reason to remove it. This rejection was validated through consulting with the TCPM list.
