Description

Using /etc/protocols leads to subtle differences in output. E.g. in ICMPv6 we have IPv6-ICMP on Ubuntu, but IPV6-ICMP on FreeBSD 12. Alpine Linux with musl doesn't define SCTP and so on.

Suggest using the names/values in the authoritative source: https://www.iana.org/assignments/protocol-numbers/protocol-numbers.xhtml#protocol-numbers-1
