    source code of Extended ICMP


    i am using ubuntu but i dont think this might help. i want to find the source code of how the Extended ICMP to Support Multi-part Messages
    ([RFC 4884 (rfc4884)] - ) is implemented. i only find how the basic is implemented. can anyone help me with that? because i want to send extended icmp messages and not the basic.


    and what kernel supports the extended icmp?

    thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The RFC is clear enough to provide you the information required to impliment it yourself if necessary. I suspect you could start from the RFC 792 code base and update it to support RFC 4884. As I mentioned in my reply to your other request for this information in another forum, I was not able to find an open source implementation of 4884 in a quick google search, though that is not to say one doesn't exist. However, since the draft standard only came out 2 years ago, it is still early for a widely used implementation to be released, I think.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
