I don't know very much about it, and that is why I asked.  Maybe there
is a good reason to set these bits.  If dante networks use value X,
then the easiest and most logical way to inter-operate is to use
--transportSpecific=X and be done with it.  As an added bonus, all of
the PTP frames will be consistent.

The general approach that I have haven with linuxptp is to make most
everything configurable.  That is how we are able to support such a
large variety of profiles, including 1588 and 802.1-AS.  Rather than
hard coding different profiles, the user may freely mix and match.
For example, there has been some talk about using AVB over IP
networks.  With linuxptp, this is already supported.  You simply edit 
gPTP.cfg and change 'network_transport' from 'L2' to 'UDPv4', and it

Too bad the software isn't working in your "professional" environment.
