I had some similar issues recently with my Netopia modem from Eircom --
again about 4-5 yrs old...
I notice my Netopia modem started giving me gyp in the last day or so
whereby it the DSL was down after a reconfig/reboot until I powercycled
the box---after which I'm getting these every minute or so:
May 5 14:42:05 netopia_gw Netopia-3000/191097442010 protocol:ICMP srcIP: 18.104.22.168 dstIP: xx.xx.xx.xx type: 0 code: 0 dropped - violation of security policy
May 5 14:43:06 netopia_gw Netopia-3000/191097442010 protocol:ICMP srcIP: 22.214.171.124 dstIP: xx.xx.xx.xx type: 0 code: 0 dropped - violation of security policy
May 5 14:44:08 netopia_gw Netopia-3000/191097442010 protocol:ICMP srcIP: 126.96.36.199 dstIP: xx.xx.xx.xx type: 0 code: 0 dropped - violation of security policy
That IP address is b-ras2.lmk.limerick.eircom.net
It would seem as if these are ICMP echo replies to an Eircom box that is
pinging my box---but why?
