RFC 3542, "Advanced Sockets Application Program Interface (API) for IPv6", May 2003

Source of RFC: ipv6 (int)

Errata ID: 253

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Hideaki Yoshifuji

Section 11.3 says:

   This cmsghdr will be passed to every socket that sets the
   IPV6_RECVPATHMTU socket option, even if the socket is non-connected.
   Note that this also means an application that sets the option may
   receive an IPV6_MTU ancillary data item for each ICMP too big error
   the node receives, including such ICMP errors caused by other
   applications on the node.

It should say:

   This cmsghdr will be passed to every socket that sets the
   IPV6_RECVPATHMTU socket option, even if the socket is non-connected.
   Note that this also means an application that sets the option may
   receive an IPV6_PATHMTU ancillary data item for each ICMP too big error
   the node receives, including such ICMP errors caused by other
   applications on the node.

Notes:

Change: IPV6_MTU should be IPV6_PATHMTU.

In section 10.2 (page 41), the RFC says:

      int inet6_opt_append(void *extbuf, socklen_t extlen, int offset,
                           uint8_t type, socklen_t len, uint_t align,
                           void **databufp);

It should say:

      int inet6_opt_append(void *extbuf, socklen_t extlen, int offset,
                           uint8_t type, socklen_t len, uint8_t align,
                           void **databufp);

Notes:

Similarly, the following part of Section 15 (page 55)

<netinet/in.h> int inet6_opt_append(void *, socklen_t, int,
uint8_t, socklen_t, uint_t,
void **);

Should actually be:

<netinet/in.h> int inet6_opt_append(void *, socklen_t, int,
uint8_t, socklen_t,
uint8_t, void **);

That is, "uint_t" should be replaced with "uint8_t".
