SubjectRe: [Patch] IPv4 TCP security impovement
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have not been paying to much attention to this thread so my apoligies if
I am misunderstandiing this.

the origional proposal was to make ports that are not listened to return
nothing and log the attempt instead of returning a reset. As you mention
this is a firewall function. Can the ipchains do this or does this need to
ba added?

David Lang

"If users are made to understand that the system administrator's job is to
make computers run, and not to make them happy, they can, in fact, be made
happy most of the time. If users are allowed to believe that the system
administrator's job is to make them happy, they can, in fact, never be made
happy."
