Omniswitch 63xx 64xx and 65xx series and RFC7323

Post by mzar »

Omniswitches 63xx 64xx and 65xx series seem to be non-conformant with RFC7323[1][2]. The workaround for this would be probably disabling the negotiation of TCP timestamps. Is such an option configurable on Omniswitch?

Not all Alcatel-Lucent switches are affected. The TCP stack run on OS68xx seems to be at a glance conformant with RFC7323 - at least no connectivity issues observable.

How can I give the company any feedback about this issue?

in the knowledge base I founded the ariticle 000041464 (nearly 3 years old). Answer there is "As per current design, there were no CLI command to disabled the TCP timestamp in AOS switches."
So you need to open a ticket at ALE - maybe there is a possibilty meantime. Otherwise you can open a PER to implement this feature....
