Grr, once again caught by the default Reply action to go directly to Scott...

Hi Scott,

The blocking we are talking about is done in the IGate software and should not be configurable by the user.  The server-side filters do not "filter" any packets going -to- the server and the IGates should be making their own decisions regarding what packets are gated to RF (server-side filters are -not- to be relied upon directly for this decision process as the server will provide more packets than should be gated to RF; this decision process is an IGate internal process).

This thread is addressing software author concerns (maximum packet length, third-party packet formatting and blocking, etc.).  In general, these should not be configurable by the user, novice or long-time expert. ;-)

Hope this helps.
