CORBA34 — connection_complete field of the FirewallPathRespContext is under specified

  • Key: CORBA34-279
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7317
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Syracuse University ( Joncheng Kuo)
  • Summary:

    The connection_complete field of the FirewallPathRespContext is under specified.

    The fourth paragraph (including IDL) from the end of Section 1.5.4, Firewall Service Context, says,

    “Once the connection has been established, the last intelligent firewall in the FirewallPath sends a FIREWALL_PATH_RESP service context in another NegotiateSession message.”

    However, the last paragraph of this section says that, when the connection is not completely established, a FIREWALL_PATH_RESP service context with the connection_complete field of false is sent.

    Furthermore, when the connection_complete field is false, the spec does not explain what are the situations that may cause incomplete connection establishment and what the client shall do for “further processing”. Shall the FIREWALL_PATH_RESP service context also contains information indicating what the client shall do?
