Suppose I have a socket which contain several associations in it. that means there are several clients connect with server.

If I use sendmsg(...) function to send msg from server, How does sctp identify which association will receive the data? Does all clients will receive the msg?

And, Does sctp provide a way for server to send msg to all associations in one syscall ?

I'm adding experimental support for UDP encapsulation of SCTP packets. I got most of if working well. However, I noticed a NULL pointer dereference in sctp_packet_transmit as I assumed that packet->transport->asoc weren't NULL so I tried to access tunneling information that I store in packet->transport->asoc->ep->base.

In what circumstances is assoc NULL in sctp_packet_transmit?
