As a tech guy, I prefer people to connect to us native instead of any other method, it removes all the sillyness i've seen (including v6 p-mtu issues). It keeps the packets moving the best path and not cloaking the underlying topology so people can find the trouble. Same reason MPLS networks don't always turn on/off ttl-decrement when following a (TE) tunnel. It also makes it easier to troubleshoot and speculate where troubles are ;-). - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from firstname.lastname@example.org clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
