Re: IP source routing questions

10 Oct 1986 06:02-EDT


For the case in point where a packet for a TCP connection is re-routed
to arrive at a host on a distinct interface from the one the connection
originally was formed upon, how would the TCP layer properly map to
the correct connection, considering that the apparent destination
address in the IP would have changed from A1 to A2 - or do you leave
the A1 in place to aid TCP demuxing but source route to A2 (a change
in the interpretation of the source routing function att the IP level,
I think).
