Re: [Question #230140]: some questions


Question #230140 on rohc changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Didier Barvaux proposed the following answer:

The decompressor starts in U-mode. When it decompresses the first
packets, if it is associated with a compressor, it will always try to
send a positive ROHC feedback with mode O-mode to the compressor. The
U-mode -> O-mode transition is achieved this way. If you don't want the
decompressor to ask compressor for O-mode, don't associate it with a
local compressor.

This question was already asked several times on the mailing list.
Please check list archives before asking questions. R-mode is not
implemented at all in the ROHC library. The library can be used in
production (in U- and O-modes). In fact, I got reports that the library
is currently used in production without any problem: no stability
problem & great performances :)

Compressor/decompressor start in U-mode. If a feedback channel is
defined (= decompressor associated with another local compressor), it
will go to O-mode. R-mode is not implemented. There is no O-mode ->
U-mode transition. All of those transitions are automated, you don't
need to do anything. Just configure or do not configure a feedback
channel for your decompressors.
