Subjectpacket created by local raw socket
Rob, 
Thanks for your reply! It's very good!


In fact my problem is simpler to you( the
last email is not clear):

Now I create a raw socket(SOCK_RAW) on a local machine, construct
a ICMP packet and send it out. So what queues will this packet go through?

I tested it and it seems that this packet first goes to OUTPUT
queue. is that right? If so, then ip stack's interface to RAW socket
should be below the function of appending IP header to a transport layer
datagram but above the routing decision function and also above the
OUTPUT queue, am I right?

Thanks!

Fu
