Thanks for the reply! It was much appreciated, and I will do what I can to
iron any problems out. (Also, I am very sorry for putting you or anyone
else out there)
My final question is this... could you give any tip on what specifics to
look/search for? I've been searching through the archives available at
http://oss.sgi.com/projects/netdev/archive/ for every single inclusion of
SYN in any of the archives by now, but could not find any specifics on
_what_ the syn cookies breaks, or why, except for ECN, SACK and
I have also checked through the source code as well as I could, as well as
Mr. Bernsteins algorithms, searched the net at large with 3 search
engines... and I am still not clever enough to figure it out.
In short, what I am trying to ask for is simply some kind of hints on
where to look... I hope you don't mind.
PS. David, sorry for sending this in private before, no bad intentions
