Dear Concerns,


I found that the driver contains public IP(169.254.10.240), which leads to my binary 
with public IP too, which is not what I want.
What is the function of this IP, and could the community delete it for security reasons?


>>[root@localhost dpdk-19.11]# grep "169.254.10.240" -r  ./
>>./drivers/net/ark/ark_pktgen.c:	{{"dst_ip"}, OTSTRING, .v.STR = "169.254.10.240"},
>>./drivers/net/ark/ark_pktchkr.c:	{{"dst_ip"}, OTSTRING, .v.STR = "169.254.10.240"}


Thanks & Regards,
Peanut_Huang

Bigger question is why does this driver have its own packet generator embedded
inside it?
