Hi ,
I wanted to know what exactly is a PDU. Where is the length of the pdu defined in the PDU.
I believe a PDU is a "Protocol Data Unit". I believe it is the 
application layer packet that has been wrapped into TCP or UDP, or the 
"payload" of TCP or UDP. It's length is specified by whatever protocol 
is used to fill that payload, so it varies from protocol to protocol.
