6.	RFC 4878 say that,
? Remote loopback is a link state where the peer Ethernet entity echoes
   every received packet (without modifications) back onto the link.
   Remote loopback is intrusive in that the other end of the link is not
   forwarding traffic from higher layers out over the link.  This
