 case, you shouldn't see any valid ICMP redirects.  They're there mostly so
things kind-of-sort-of work even if you botch it (so for instance, even if
you whiff your default route accidentally, you can still ssh in from Tokyo and
fix  > it).

For ICMP redirects to do anything useful,  a valid route has to
actually be there already, on the default gateway....

Perhaps you are thinking of proxy arp? :)
