Section 2, pg.5 says:

<< first bullet >>

                                                    vv
|  -  The Control-Client initiates a TCP connection on TWAMP's well-
      known port, and the Server (its role now established) responds
      with its Greeting message, indicating the security/integrity
      mode(s) it is willing to support.

It should say:

                                                    vv
|  -  The Control-Client initiates a TCP connection to TWAMP's well-
      known port, and the Server (its role now established) responds
      with its Greeting message, indicating the security/integrity
      mode(s) it is willing to support.

Notes:

The "on" is misleading or ambiguous; such verbiage commonly is used
to denote the *source* port used to send a packet, but from the
context (and in particular the first paragraph of Section 3.1)
it seems likely that you mean the *destination* port number here.

The corrected text aims to disambiguate/clarify/correct this.
