Im not afraid to admit it @thomas-mangin, I’m a bit stumped. At least I’ve learnt a bit about socket programming today if nothing else :) I’m not able to prove this, but I’m not convinced python socket correctly handles the access into the socket interface for TCP_MD5SIG. (side note; socket.socket.getsockopt(6,14) always returns '[Errno 92] Protocol not available' which is less than helpful.) I see EXA uses exactly the same function to set MD5 .setsockopt() for the correctly functioning outgoing packet (I agree with the packing too), so my doubt is with perhaps how this option is interpreted by socket.socket.listen()
