    SubjectPing with a 65510 bytes pack

    Hi,

    I'm new to this list and so I don't know if you already have
    talked about this problem.
    When a friend of mine, using a Win95 workstation, issued the ping
    command using a pack of 65510 bytes and addressed to my Linux 2.0.22, it
    simply rebooted. On the second time he issued that command, all the
    process stopped because of a general protection 000, including the agetty
    processes.
    This problem was reported on comp.unix.aix (I think) regarding to
    AIX (obviously), but I tried on a Linux system and it worked (my system
    stopped).

    Best Regards from :
