Most routers will regard any ICMP request to them as a low priority
do they? icmp is not only about 'echo'. there's lot of
other functions via type/code - fragmentation, mtu etc,
vital for traffic signalization. administrators, who
blindly closes all icmp traffic are plain stupid idiots.
Lots 'o flame but no light.
How about sharing your knowledge of why certain icmp traffic should be
allowed and the risks associated with allowing that traffic?
