So what happens when you find packets being dropped?
AFAIK, a dropped voice packet is as good as dead whether local or remote.
If it is dropped locally, you can re-send in way less than 1 milisecond,
which is well within the realm of expected jitter. You can also back off
for 5 miliseconds to alleviate congestion, which is still within acceptable
If you think you sent it, but didn't actually send it, then it looks like
your network is shitting, when in fact your local machine is acting shitty.
Okay, so with IP_RECVERR set the case that Eric saw will not happen? I
mean that sendto() will return with -1 and errno set to ENOBUFS?
