How do you prevent packets from your network with a broadcast address, since 
what defines a "broadcast" address really depends on the subnet mask?


We prevent ANY packets to or from our network with a broadcast
address.  We don't filter on a per-machine basis for address
spoofing, but ALL packets leaving our network must have a valid
address on our network.  Basically, one user on our network can spoof
another user on our network, but no users can spoof addresses that
are not on our network.

We have changed our name!  Corporate Communications Technology is now
known as Chesapeake Communications Corporation.
