sorry to all. let me clarify so as not to offend anyone.
i dont want to or encourage use of rfc1918 space for anything other
internal networking to conserve address space. they serve no more
signifigance than that for me.
del's rule...rfc1918 are the inside only - no exposure allowed...kiss
anything else is way too complicated and doesnt work as well as basic stuff.
i dont have to worry about control messages are anything else from the
addy's if i dont use them in the
also i saw a reference to a carrier usage showing up in a traceroute...
there is a source i have a great deal of respect for...NOT....

I think you misinterpreted what I meant. The breaking of traceroute itself
is what I was implying wasn't a big issue. I'm NOT saying that it's a good
idea, nor that traceroute is the only thing it did affect. In fact, any
control messages (ICMP) coming back from a 1918-addressed transit router may
be dropped. That includes all the various unreachables, etc. Sorry I
