Re: Comcast is using Sandvine to manage P2P Connections
said by Anonymous Coward :Yes, I tried this with linux iptables, and got really excited when it seemed to thwart the problem. But then I realized that the connections were dead, but they simply weren't being removed from the active list.
Has anyone tried configuring their firewall to block incoming RST packets?
I believe this means that the RST is sent both ways. The response to an RST is not a FIN so the TCP/IP stack doesn't know the connection has been dropped.
Good thinking, though.
said by no oper :I hadn't noticed. They could have been set, or not. Are you directly connected? -- or could your router be adding that bit for use on the LAN?
I also noticed, that bit 6 of the IP TOS field was set on all these reset packets.
