     For an IP datagram containing a TCP segment, the value for the IP TTL
field has been specified as "one minute".

     This is stated in both specifications for the Transmission Control
Protocol: on page 51 of RFC 793, in the "TCP/Lowel-Level Interface"
section, and on page 140 of the 12 August 1983 edition of MIL-STD-1778
in the section "9.4.6.3.19 Format net params".
