Question about new throttling system A question for funchords :
Robb, since the new throttling system was put in place, have/can you verified that unsolicited TCP RSTs are no longer being sent across the wire both ways?
I can do this myself, but it requires a bit of work, and I figure you probably have testing methodologies still in place.
I'm basically wanting verification that Comcast has in fact removed the "feature" that induced all of this insanity to begin with.

Re: Bandwidth Limits - All discussion here When I tested last, I no longer saw suspicious RSTs in Portland when doing P2P uploads.
I also point you to this letter from Comcast to the FCC:
FWIW. I would imagine that there is a rather high price for fibbing on such a letter.
I probably won't ever say that the entire network is clean. This is not me being stubborn, it's me simply saying that I can't prove by the the lack of misbehavior under unknown and uncontrolled conditions on my particular (and probably well-marked) account means anything. (In black-box software testing, we can only prove the presence of bugs, not their absence.)
That said, I obviously remain interested. It's been a very wild year-and-a-half!
Sorry for the cryptic response. If I were you, I would read my reply as "it won't hurt to keep our eyes open but it's not a signal to spend significant time and energy looking for suspicious RSTs."
