Bogon Networks

  • Any one have a reason for me not to turn on the "Block Bogon Networks" option?

    Is this a static file or is it dynamically updated?

    "Block bogon networks
    When set, this option blocks traffic from IP addresses that are reserved (but not RFC 1918) or not yet assigned by IANA.
    Bogons are prefixes that should never appear in the Internet routing table, and obviously should not appear as the source address in any packets you receive."


  • the bogon networks are updated frequently. you usually shouldn't have any problems when enabling these blockings.

  • hoba,

    Thanks for the reply, I have them enabled.
