RFC 6282, "Compression Format for IPv6 Datagrams over IEEE 802.15.4-Based Networks", September 2011

Source of RFC: 6lowpan (int)

Errata ID: 4814

Status: Reported
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Dale R. Worley
Date Reported: 2016-09-27

Section 1 says:

Additionally, a Hop Limit value of 255 is often used to verify that a
communication occurs over a single-hop.

It should say:

Additionally, a Hop Limit value of 1 is often used to verify that a
communication occurs over a single-hop.

Notes:

The other Hop Limit values in this paragraph may also be mistaken.
The document treats the values 1, 64, and 255 specially, but fixing
this sentence would leave no reason for the value 255 to be treated
specially, so I expect that 255 is the value intended for another
sentence.
