    I don't know what led you this wrong conclusion, but please let me 
show that is not the case. Section 3.3 of our original paper linked 
below describes the forwarding algorithm as well as the header format.

    https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/nsdi12/nsdi12-final13.pdf

    One can find the reference to this paper in our XIA 101 page in our 
wiki:

https://github.com/AltraMayor/XIA-for-Linux/wiki/XIA-101

    The code does transmit packet, you can find function 
__xip_fill_in_hdr() in file net/xia/output.c 
(https://github.com/AltraMayor/XIA-for-Linux/blob/xia/net/xia/output.c) 
that fills out the XIP header, and examples to how set up some 
experiments with our stack are available here:
