No, the problem is that there is a ttl field and a version field. There is no reason to use the ttl field for the version or the version field for the ttl. When we query the information from the kernel, why don't we use the correct stuff in the common header structure. And the ttl position wasn't stable... so it would create a random number anyway when mixing particular versions of batman-adv/batctl.
But yes, you are right that the TTL mentioned in my first post doesn't make sense either.
Kind regards, Sven
