2.2.5.1.1 Action Flavors

The ActionFlavor field contains flags used in conjunction with the ActionType field and specifies additional information associated with the action (2) to be taken.

The only ActionType field values that currently support an Action Flavor are "OP_REPLY", "OP_OOF_REPLY" and "OP_FORWARD". The value of the ActionFlavor field MUST be 0x00000000 if the value of the ActionType field is not one of these values.

If the value of the ActionType field is "OP_FORWARD", the ActionFlavor field contains a combination of the bitwise flags specified as follows.

If the ActionType field value is "OP_REPLY" or "OP_OOF_REPLY", the ActionFlavor field MUST have one of the values specified in the following table or zero (0x00000000). A value of zero (0x00000000) indicates standard reply behavior, as specified in section 3.1.4.2.5.
