Open relays and open proxies

[CC list cleaned up]

I think the most basic thing that any xSP could do to prevent relays and other
basic address spoofing would be to disable source ip routing in every router
that's installed. I would prevent a lot of abuse.


Can you support with data either:
1) IP source routing is used for "lots of abuse"
2) disabling IP source routing would prevent "lots of abuse"

LSRR is a tool utilized to verify network topology and investigate
such things as pointing default, etc. Several SP's require LSRR
at minimum on border routers for this reason.

It was explained to me by one of the kind folks at that my assertions
were incorrect and why. I now stand corrected. my humblest apologies for
the use of the bandwidth.
