What happens if you are running like 3 firewalls together, do they all work at the same time?

Ok I just installed a firewall and then after sometime I got this message........ Someone on address host-2**-214-1-51.mia.bellsouth.net [2**.214.1.51] wants to send ICMP packet to your machine What exactly does this mean?

I've ran 3 at a time, and I never had a problem. That message may be your ISP sending you stuff. There's a site to find out the user of an IP, but I forgot what the URL is. Anyway, I had the same sort of thing, and i figured out it was my ISP. Don't worry about it (I think..)

In ZoneAlarm there is an Allow (or something like that) option. Basically (if I understand it correctly) it allows connection even though the computer is locked.
