Errata ID: 6472
Status: Reported

Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 12.4, para 2 says:

A Peer Offer Signal MUST be encoded within a UDP packet.  The IP source and destination fields in the packet MUST be set by swapping the values received in the Peer Discovery Signal.  The Peer Offer Signal completes the discovery process; see Section 7.1.

It should say:

A Peer Offer Signal MUST be encoded within a UDP packet. If the Modem is not including IPv4 and IPv6 Connection Point Data Items in the Peer Offer Signal, then the IP source field in the packet MUST be set to the unicast address the router must use when connecting the DLEP TCP session, otherwise any valid local address MUST be used.  The IP destination field in the packet MUST be set to the IP source field value received in the Peer Discovery Signal.  The Peer Offer Signal completes the discovery process; see Section 7.1.

Notes:

The original text will not result in a valid unicast IP packet.
