Fragmentation exercise


A 4000 byte-long datagram has to be transmitted over a network whose MTU is 512 bytes. Determine the number of fragments and, for each one of them, write down the fragment offset field contents and the number of data bytes of each fragment.

Solution was presented as a spreadsheet in the class. Here you have a copy. You can export it to your favorite spreadsheet software too (to see the formulas).
