Guys,
Back to stealthing...  It makes sense to me NOT to DROP... but what
about stealthing like this:

I've got DSL, and I know the IP of my gateway.  When I want to appear
invisible, I respond to unwanted packets with a 'REJECT - ICMP host
unreachable' that has a spoofed source address of my gateway?  That way,
it looks like the gateway responded and I don't exist!   


Whadduya think?

Bob
