3.7. The IP Group

The access attribute of the variable ipForwarding has been changed from read-only to read-write.

In addition, there is a new column to the ipAddrTable object,


which keeps track of the largest IP datagram that can be re-assembled on a particular interface.

The descriptor of the ipRoutingTable object has been changed to ipRouteTable for consistency with the other IP routing objects. There are also three new columns in the ipRouteTable object,


the first is used for IP routing subsystems that support arbitrary subnet masks, and the latter two are IP routing protocol-specific.

Two new objects are added to the IP group:


the first is the address translation table for the IP group (providing identical functionality to the now deprecated atTable in the address translation group), and the latter provides information when routes are lost due to a lack of buffer space.
