SubjectRe: [PATCH] document ECN in 2.4 Configure.help
   From: Bernd Eckenfels <ecki@lina.inka.de>
Date: Tue, 07 Nov 2000 03:38:35 +0100

Because this will add a Fallback (non ECN) packet to every denied
target. I think this is bad policy at least. It might violate the
RFCs, too. Keep in mind, we cannot recognice a rejection due to
ECN.

It does in fact violate RFCs because the fallback has to handle the
case where ECN rejection comes in the form of a (perfectly valid)
TCP reset.

Any workaround which ignores TCP resets is broken from the start and
is not to be implemented.

Later,
