I know of one ISP for sure who does. They have a transparent proxy that
catches (and caches) traffic in both directions. Incoming "default.ida"
requests are dropped, for outgoing ones the customer is disconnected and
gets a phone call soon after.
If a few more ISP's did this, we'd all be much happier..
-- A few years ago, Friday, October 14 was World Standards Day. Or, at least, it was World Standards Day in *some* countries. However, in America, the celebrations were held on October 11th. In Finland, World Standards Day was marked on October 13th. Italy planned a separate conference on standards for October 18th. - Shakib Otaqui
