        I just check out cisco box (utah-arpa-gw) and it had two idle
incoming sessions from hubcap.clemson.edu showing idle for 3 days+ and
originating at hubcap. It appears like somebody is telnetting to our
gateway, and then into some other machine.... This may be because with
the egp/ggp problems, the can't reach the 128.110.xx.xx addresses any
other way.

        Given the load on our cisco, and assuming there is a legitimate
user at clemson trying to telnet into our 128.110 net, I would think that
a static route (oh how horrible :-) ) would be better then tying up band-
width in the gateway.

        Any comments from the net at large?
