Status: Verified
Type: Technical

On p. 16 and 18, it says:

   IP Fields:

   Type

It should say:

   ICMP Fields:

   Type

Notes:

On page 16, the section 'Timestamp and Timestamp Reply Messages' has
the header 'IP Fields:' - first mentioned after the graph and then
again after 'Addresses'. The second one should actually be 'ICMP
Fields:'. This error also occurs in the discussion of the
'Information Request and Information Reply Message' on page 18.

The second 'IP Fields:' section of these two sets of message
descriptions are really talking about fields in the ICMP header not
the IP header.

In the Introduction, it says:

no ICMP messages are sent about ICMP messages

It should say:

no ICMP messages are sent about ICMP error messages


Notes:

For instance, echo replies are sent about echo messages. The context of the original sentence indicates that the author only referred to error messages but the sentence itself is not clear and I've seen the editorial error reproduced in some places.
