That would be relevant if this protocol used TCP or UDP. My understanding is that it doesn't, in which case those port assignments are quite irrelevant. Looking at the protocol types listed in /usr/include/net/ethernet.h seems more relevant, unless I have misunderstood something. > > Basically, this is just an experimental protocol that's being played > with here, and if it ever becomes real, then it will need an IANA > protocol number assignment before it's widely deployed. Are you sure that IANA would be the right organisation, since AIUI this isn't a protocol running on top of IP ? > > -- Terry -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
