Please excuse me if this has all been discussed to death in the past,
but I'm seeking the answers to the following two questions:
(1) Do any existing host or gateway implementations of IP ever decrement
the time-to-live field of a IP datagram by more than 1? I.e., does
anyone actually check for datagram holding times of more than one
second and adjust TTL accordingly?
(2) The IP spec (RFC791) says "...every module that processes a
datagram must decrease the TTL by at least one...". Is this
normally interpreted as including the originating host IP
module and/or the final destination host IP module?
