Document Table of Contents PTP Packet over UDP/IPv6

The following figures show the structure and format of the PTP packet transported over the UDP/IPv6 protocol. Checksum calculation is mandatory for the UDP/IPv6 protocol. You must extend 2 bytes at the end of the UDP payload of the PTP packet. The MAC function modifies the extended bytes to ensure that the UDP checksum remains uncompromised.
