The IP-Compression-Protocol field is two octets and indicates the compression protocol desired. Values for this field are always the same as the PPP Data Link Layer Protocol field values for that same compression protocol.

The most up-to-date values of the IP-Compression-Protocol field are specified in the most recent "Assigned Numbers" RFC [6]. Current values are assigned as follows:

         Value (in hex)          Protocol

         002d                    Van Jacobson Compressed TCP/IP


The Data field is zero or more octets and contains additional data as determined by the particular compression protocol.


No compression protocol enabled.
