I did an

  echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses
  echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts

and that seems to work. (SuSE 6.2 / Kernel 2.2.10)
You may have to include these commands into your startup scripts
to have it after the reboot.

Regards, Klaus

1. blah sent up an invalid ICMP error to a broadcast.

I have an OpenBSD firewall appliance that is reporting to its console:

AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD sent up an invalid ICMP error to a broadcast.

The other interesting thing about this is that the address
AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD is an internal interface on the OpenBSD firewall
appliance, the same device that is reporting it.

Does anyone have any clues as to what is going on here?

Thanks
Ben
