Destination Address Handling

This page details how ILP destination address prefixes are handled by the Connector when it encounters a Prepare packet.

Packet Destination Address Handling

Every ILPv4 Prepare packet has a destination address that indicates where a packet should ultimately be delivered. These addresses MUST always conform to IL-RFC-15 and may begin with one of several valid address-prefixes.

Each of these prefixes has special meaning, and is handled by the Connector in slightly different ways, as described in the following chart.
