Source of RFC: tsvwg (tsv)

Status: Rejected
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 6.1.1. says:

If the TCP connection does not
wish to use ECN notification for a particular packet, the sending TCP
sets the ECN codepoint to not-ECT, and the TCP receiver ignores the
CE codepoint in the received packet.

It should say:

If the TCP connection does not
wish to use ECN notification for a particular packet, the sending TCP
sets the ECN codepoint to not-ECT.

Notes:

The receiver should not ignore any CE codepoint.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
This is not an editorial fix or technical clarification, but proposes to change the processing of ECN. Please go ahead and write a draft that works towards updating RFC 3168.
