[Freeswitch-users] ICMP... and MTU

Here in france, it is a common topic for ADSL links, not so much for
SDSL ( only ATM impacted, EFM is fine ) and not at all on Optical Fiber.
Now that we are our own ISP and don't sell ADSL, everything's fine :)
There are no distinction on residential/commercial offers for that subject.
The popular belief that 'badguycantpingmeimsafe' is still very strong (
though who would seriously loose time scanning a range with ICMP when
tcp/udp does it well, and that after scanning with ICMP, you would
anyway engage a port/app scan ? ).
Each time I have to explain customers whom I don't manage the firewall
why it is not good ( we have a perfect example with an administration's
website, which needs MTU 1460 max, so that's quite easy to demo to the
customer: you can upload, you can't ). We even distribute a "Best
practice" manual for our customers which cover this.

> I want to open a discussion on this topic, I’m sure many of you fine freeswitchers have encountered the pain of exceeding the MTU and things not handling it properly. I’ve also see this mindset that blocking all ICMP will somehow make your network more secure, In doing this you’re actually breaking PMTU and the internet in general. So check your firewalls, if you’re blocking repent now and fix it… Input and discussions would be welcome on this topic.
