ICMP Echo

    I have tested with shields up. I am still flunking on ICMP Echo. I have
    set a DZM but if I did that right it did not work. I use XP Pro and have
    a SMC router. I went to the DMZ page and put 192.168.2.40 and .41. My
    router gives me possible choices of 192.168.2.1 to .40. I still get the
    ICMP echo.
    I dont know how bad that really is but I really cant live with it. I
    also have Norton Personal Firewall, I cant find any configuration in it
    that seems to work. In the firewall I have both inbound and outbound
    ICMP blocked. Maybe I need a different software firewall, zone alarm is
    good but it always messes up my WiFi connection, which I use to share my
    DSL with two other computers in my house.
    Can anyone give me any advice, I have googled till I am cross eyed.

    Thanks

    Change that dmz stuff back the way it was. In your router configuration page
    look for something like "Block Wan Request" and activate it.
