    Dropping ICMP Requests?

    Greetings again!

    I am interested in dropping ICMP (ping) requests against my computer. Is this possible with Windows XP's raw sockets capabilities? And if so, does anyone have sample code?

    Yes it is possible, but I really have no where near a good enough foundation on raw sockets to tell you what to do with that.

    Just for clarification(if you didn't know this already..as i'm sure you do), your interested in catching the icmp request and blocking your reply as well.

    This might help you a bit http://sudhirmangla.i6networks.com/p...l/Firewall.htm if your looking for some general examples on how to code the firewall..sadly windows doesn't have much of an open-source community..otherwise there would be a better link.
