Removing T/TCP and replacing it with something simpler

I have a question. In our application which can be described as:
Client ----> (Client Gateway) -------> SATLINK ------> (Server Gateway)
We act as the Internet servers (transparent proxies) and therefore T/TCP
traffic is only sent over the SATLINK. In the current T/TCP
implementation the sender has to send a ccnew option to discover that
the server side supports T/TCP. Now we had to modify this so the
gateways uses the knowledge that they work together and they don't need
to send a ccnew option everytime a client makes a connection to a new
My question is: In the new implementation does the cookie will be
generated per machine or like the tao mecanism will it be based on a src
/ dst tuple?

Right, Actually we are based on FBSD 4.9 and we are planning to port to
5.3 as soon as it gets stable, which could be anytime soon ;).
