Syntax Description

The default is disabled.

Usage Guidelines

This command disables TCP fragment checking. This checking takes effect for IPv4/IPv6. When it is enabled, the switch drops TCP packets if one of following condition is true:
  • For the first IPv4 TCP fragment (its IP offset field==0), if its TCP header is less than the minimum IPv4 TCP header allowed size.

  • If its IP offset field==1 (for IPv4 only).


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
