RFC 3331, "Signaling System 7 (SS7) Message Transfer Part 2 (MTP2) - User Adaptation Layer", September 2002

Source of RFC: sigtran (rai)

Errata ID: 1426

Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 3.3.2.6,p.35 says:

   The sending node defines the Heartbeat Data field contents.  It may
   include a Heartbeat Sequence Number and/or time stamp, or other
   implementation specific details.

   The receiver of a Heartbeat message does not process this field as it
   is only of significance to the sender.  The receiver echoes the
   content of the Heartbeat Data in a BEAT ACK message.

It should say:

   The receiver of a Heartbeat message echoes the content of the
   Heartbeat Data field contained therein without further processing
   in the Heartbeat Data field of the Heartbeat Ack message.

Notes:

Apparently, the quoted text has been copied from 3.3.2.5 without
performing the appropriate rewording to accommodate the context
of 3.3.2.6 (BEAT ACK message).
