However, it's 11PM, and I'm still in my lab because I just spent several hours figuring out that a pile of gear I was supposed to test was *supposed* to include a Foundry switch to use for a private network - but instead of 4 ports connected to PCs that were dual-homed to the building network and the private net, he wired up 3 ports to dual-homed boxes, and one port to the building net to reach the 4th PC. Whoops... ;) Do you trust every person you work with to not maliciously snarf packets *and* to not accidentally route all those cleartext packets out the wrong interface at the wrong time?
