Re: IP flooding by using broadcast address

        before my mailbox gets spammed by all of y'all, I'd like to
publicly apologize for my "cisco bashing."  cisco makes a fine product
that I recommend in most situations.

        I'd still like to know that cisco listens to little guys like
me, tho.

        Also, I need to point out that my recommendations of filtering
the broadcast address are targeted towards leaf networks, rather than
transit networks.

      I think it would be very wise of cisco to have a global flag
(or at least, a per-interface flag) which would prevent the forwarding
of a packet to an all-ones address.  If cisco won't add this feature,
maybe Ascend will in their GRF, and maybe a few more GRF's will be sold
because of it.
