Subject TTLimit directive
Date Tue, 13 Jun 2017 08:41:18 GMT

I would like to propose this patchset allowing to set maximum TTL
value for incoming requests. This is not a usual use case, but I'm
interested (maybe others too) to have this in place. The real use case
would be like this one

TL;DR: if you want to deny requests bypassing proxy layer (in this
case Apache operates as a backend). Hence set TTLimit to 1 and Apache
will be able to handle requests coming almost from the local network,
because packets with TTL usually come from local networks.

I don't know which place is the right place to put patches, but original
patch is here:
