Among many usages, Linux can be used/configured as an "End

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".
Seehttp://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1122regarding "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
There seem to be a lot of people wondering how to do this, but haven't
been able to find a crisp and clear advice/solution on how to exactly
achieve this with the Linux networking stack.
From what I see setting up policy based routing could be a/thesolution? But are there other alternatives?
It would be nice if there would be a simple configuration flag for
either configuring the Linux host either as weak or strong. But I
guess there does not exist such a configuration option? If not it
might be a useful/helpful configuration option to add? Do you agree?
