The "no ip directed-broadcast" directive, if applied to all router
interfaces, will prevent your site from being a bounce site in the smurf
attack.  Unfortunately, it will not prevent you from being the end victim.

So, the education initiative is that *you* and *I* need to explain to
the masses why this needs to be done, no? We even have tee shirts. :-)

Well, it certainly is here....its on my borderline router now (in a few
mins).  Thanks Paul!
