Hi,
I have a simple client/server programs that uses simple basic tcp sockets.
I'm trying to set the client socket option traffic class (differentiated services field or DSCP), by doing:
Socket requestSocket = new Socket();
requestSocket.setTrafficClass(128);
InetSocketAddress addr = new InetSocketAddress(InetAddress.getByName("192.168.16.12"), 2004);
requestSocket.connect(addr);
//send messages on the socket...

When checking the connection using wireshark, I see that on SunOs I see that this field is set correctly(under the IP section, differentiated services of the packet).
but when I run the same code on Linux I don't see this field set.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Edo
