Checksum action in tc(8)             Linux            Checksum action in tc(8)

NAME
       csum - checksum update action

SYNOPSIS
       tc ... action csum UPDATE

       UPDATE := TARGET [ UPDATE ]

       TARGET := { ip4h | icmp | igmp | tcp | udp | udplite | sctp | SWEETS }

       SWEETS := { and | or | + }

DESCRIPTION
       The  csum  action  triggers  checksum recalculation of specified packet
       headers. It is commonly used to fix incorrect checksums after the pedit
       action has modified the packet content.

OPTIONS
       TARGET Specify which headers to update: IPv4 header (ip4h), ICMP header
              (icmp), IGMP header (igmp), TCP header (tcp), UDP header  (udp),
              UDPLite header (udplite) or SCTP header (sctp).

       SWEETS These are merely syntactic sugar and ignored internally.

EXAMPLES
       The   following  performs  stateless  NAT  for  incoming  packets  from
       192.0.2.100 to new destination 198.51.100.1.  Assuming  these  are  UDP
       packets, both IP and UDP checksums have to be recalculated:

              # tc qdisc add dev eth0 ingress handle ffff:
              # tc filter add dev eth0 prio 1 protocol ip parent ffff: \
                   u32 match ip src 192.0.2.100/32 flowid :1 \
                   action pedit munge ip dst set 198.51.100.1 pipe \
                   csum ip and udp
