Description gibbs 1995-04-01 15:30:01 UTC
	rfc1323 and rfc1644 negotiation can make TCP communication to other
	FreeBSD machines on the other side of a SLIP link impossible.  This
	is not a FreeBSD bug, but a bug in many terminal servers.

	During install, I would highly recommend that these two commands be
	run before any type of network installation:

	sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.rfc1323=0
	sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.rfc1644=0

	It would not look good to not be able to ftp the distribution from
	one of our own machines.  There should also be a big warning about
	this in the install notes and possibly even during installation.


Make the install program disable these features during network 
	If you want to see it in action, just let me know, and I'll turn
	rfc1323 and rfc1644 negotiation back on for narnia.hip.berkeley.edu.

State Changed
From-To: open->closed

As mentioned in the PR, this isn't a bug in FreeBSD and the decision on 
this is that TCP options negotiation should remain enabled.
