Does TCP have a one-to-one responsibility to the ULP so the local-ULP
knows what packets the remote-TCP has accepted?
On a stream socket I can:
1) Establish a connection to a remote host
2) Physically DISCONECT the NAU from the ethernet
3) Issue n TCP writes and receive n GOOD return status
4) On the n+1 write or close I (may) get an error
This may mean the n-10,n-11,n-12 reached their destination but n-1,n-2
didn't...or any other combination.I have no way of knowing.Can someone
please explain where the "reliable communication" is?
