Everything in his ICMP chain *was* an ICMP error, except echo request, and that one is rather obvious. However, you're right that I should have been clearer about that only applying to errors. You appear to be extremely eager to flame and be abusive. I suggest you spend more time working on your own personal brain/keyboard firewall settings before talking to other humans about its Internet equivalent. *plonk* -- "I'd ask if you'd found the right sort of isolated wasteland for your citadel of dread yet, but that would be a silly question; you're in Utah, after all." -- Eric Raymond to CEO of SCO -- gentoo-security@g.o mailing list
