Has anybody else seen a 4.3BSD VAX with an Interlan Ethernet interface
drop a byte of data? Well, that's what we're seeing.
For example, if you
% rsh remotehost cat 183_byte_file
and the remotehost is a 4.3/Interlan host, the rsh will fail.
If you look at a packet on the wire, say, with etherfind or tcpdump,
the IP header claims there are 223 bytes (183+40 TCP/IP headers), which
is correct. Yet there are really only 222 bytes of data in the packet.
Futhermore other file sizes fail. It appears that if (n%256 == 183)
where n is the number of bytes in the above rsh, then TCP/IP fails
because a byte is dropped from the data.
If we replace the Interlan with a DEUNA, all is as it should be.
