470   ICMP is not a part of transport

Created: 13 Feb 2007

Status: Not Applicable

Part: Part 8-1 (2004)


Page: 21

Clause: 6.2.3

Paragraph: Table -4

Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part


In table-4, ICMP(RFC792) comes as a part of Transport layer protocol and just above TCP. But as per RFC792 & RFC791, ICMP is more likely to be treated as a network layer protocol.


RFC792 should come just above RFC791 and both should be a part of network layer. RFC793 & RFC1006 should respectively come above the same as transport layer protocols.
