3.3.8 Error Reporting

3.3.8 Error Reporting

Wherever practical, hosts MUST return ICMP error datagrams on detection of an error, except in those cases where returning an ICMP error message is specifically prohibited.

DISCUSSION:

A common phenomenon in datagram networks is the "black hole disease": datagrams are sent out, but nothing comes back. Without any error datagrams, it is difficult for the user to figure out what the problem is.
