Subject: Explanation about the LZNT1 compression scheme in FRS1.


MS-FRS1.pdf indicate that LZNT1 compression is used and point to
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=90549 for explanations.

But this link only describe the Zif & Lampel method for loss-less compression. It seems that compressed data that comes after the STAGE_HEADER is mostly following this method but that there is some headers associated.

If it's not an impression can it be documented, if it's just an impression can you show in the example like 4.4.7 PDC Sends Out CMD_RECEIVING_STAGE how to pass from the compressed content to the uncompressed content ?
