Re: IGMP fragmentation bug in Windows 98/2000

Hello all,

Just to let you know I've tested all 3 recently posted programs that exploit
this IGMP frag bug in win98 on two win98 machines (not SE) using winsock
ver. 2.2 and one win95 machine whose tcp/ip stack was upgraded to 2.2 and
they all remained fine (this was at my work's dept lan, no firewalls etc
The win95 machine did get just a little slugish for a few seconds when using

I also tested them on my home network
(tcp/ip just through a local hub) with the same results against a win98
machine (winsock 2.2).

The binaries were compiled on two diff linux systems.
The one at work is a slackware 3.5 system with
gcc version egcs-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release)
and my system at home is a RH linux 6.0 system with
gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2

All programs compiled without any problem.

So all the win9x ppl: no need for total panic ;-)

Anyone else with any test results?
