i am pinging my desktop from a obsd machine and i am very curious about the
size of packet an sending. Here you have it:
***@etosha$ ping -s 65467 gustav.cpd.ufv.br
PING gustav.cpd.ufv.br (22.214.171.124): 65467 data bytes
65475 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=0 ttl=63 time=12.241 ms
65475 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=1 ttl=63 time=11.940 ms
--- gustav.cpd.ufv.br ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/std-dev = 11.940/12.090/12.241/0.186 ms
***@etosha$ ping -s 65468 gustav.cpd.ufv.br
ping: packet size is too large: 65468
I cannot ping with a message size above 65467, why ?
I realize the difference between 65535 and 65467 is 68 bytes. What is obsd
accounting for ?
Thanks in advance.
