Echo Host? / Echo Probe?
From: Jim [email protected] on 04/03/97 11:32 AM To: [email protected] cc: Subject: Echo Host? / Echo Probe? Is anyone using the concept of echo hosts today for testing, debugging, QA, etc.? Would anyone find it useful to have a network device which implemented the echo host idea (RFC 2075) and was completely separate from any network element or host? (That is, any hi-jacking of / messing with /security breaches to this device would be completely isolated and have no effect on any other network element) Disclaimer: the author works for a leading vendor of RMON probes. The question does not relate to any immediate product; the answers might.
