Re: Linux as strong end host

Hi!

Among many usages, Linux can be used/configured as an "End
System" (a.k.a. host) or a router.

When using Linux as an ES (End System), Linux can be configured/used
as supporting either the "Strong ES Model" or the "Weak ES Model". The
default for a Linux ES is the "Weak ES Model".

See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1122 regarding "Strong ES Model" and
"Weak ES Model".

The question is, what is the easiest/best way to configure/setup Linux
as an End System supporting the "Strong ES Model"?


Educate yourself in configuring the firewall, set up the routes accordingly.

For that question, you are definately in the wrong group here
