Hello again,
If Transport Layer retries are enabled, and a link layer error (e.g. a
NAK is received) occurs during a Data transfer, does a device, e.g. in
SSP Target mode, have an option not to retry the data? Can the
Target/device server terminate the command (send the status) without
retrying? Will this action violate the specs? 
Thanks in advance,
Mignon Fernandez
