RFC 4728, "The Dynamic Source Routing Protocol (DSR) for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks for IPv4", February 2007

Source of RFC: manet (rtg)
See Also: RFC 4728 w/ inline errata

Errata ID: 927
Status: Verified
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 8.6.2 says:

   -  Set the Protocol field of the IP header to the protocol number
      assigned for DSR (48).

It should say:

   -  Set the Protocol field of the previous header to the protocol
      number assigned for DSR (48).

Notes:

The procedure specified in Section 8.6.2 is a bit misleading in its
last step; if followed literally, it will mess up the packet in the
case that there is any Hop-by-Hop Options header present after the
IP header.
