    what happens with ICMP redirects that don't originate from your LAN ?
    i.e. I'm seeing ICMP redirects from a router in a different country :-0
    well, I guess that nothing will happen, since the packets will be routed
    through our local router anyway. but's it's funny to see those packets
    arrive :)
