Protocol Numbers

Posted on January 8, 2009 by Daniel Petri in Networking with 0 Comments

The Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) (RFC791) there is a field, called "Protocol", to identify the next level protocol. This is an 8 bit field. In Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) (RFC1883 and RFC2460) this field is called the "Next Header" field.
