No, I meant incoming ping reqs to the CPE Router's WAN interface. We
have seen home networks getting attacked with pings from the WAN in
cable deployments. As one may note, we don't discuss any throttling of
ping reqs or responses into/from the CPE Router. We are going to think
about it and see what do mention about throttling for the CPE Router.
I'm confused. How does one rate-limit incoming requests on the WAN side
when that's not under the control of the device? You can only rate-limit
what you originate or forward, regardless of whether it's destination is
internal or external.
