Re: 69/8...this sucks -- Centralizing filtering..

The problem isn't bogon filters per say. The problem is that someone got it in their head that if you filter packets using a bogon list, you'll limit the number of possible spoofed packets allowed into your network. Given than many bots use randomizers, and bogon networks do cover a large amount of the netspace, this may be true. Then again, perhaps not. It doesn't matter in the end. The fact remains that while people may protect the routes from being advertised, many large providers do not drop packets that do not have valid routes. Because of this, many firewalls (which don't run BGP) filter based on bogon lists. Only 1 of the last 6 people I contacted for blocking 69/8 actually had BGP. -Jack
