ICMP is, like IP, host-to-host , and so they are never delivered to a specific port, even if they are sent in response to an error related to something sent from that port. ICMP messages are identified by an 8-bit type field, followed by an 8-bit subtype, or code. Here are the more common ICMP types, with subtypes listed in the description. Like ping , but requesting a timestamp from the destination. The Echo and Timestamp formats are queries , sent by one host to another. Most of the others are all error messages , sent by a router to the sender of the offending packet.
To create or edit a network rule for an application group:. The Firewall window opens to the Application network rules tab. This opens the Application control rules or Application group control rules window. Set of parameters that define network activity. For this network activity, you can create a network rule that regulates the operation of Firewall.
The Internet Protocol [IP] is not designed to be absolutely reliable. The purpose of these control messages [ICMP] is to provide feedback about problems in the communication environment, not to make IP reliable. There are still no guarantees that a datagram will be delivered or a control message will be returned.
ICMP can also be used as a simple query protocol. Standard service objects are not editable. However, you can copy and paste a copy of a service object into the User tree and edit it there, or you can right-click the ICMP folder in the User tree and select New ICMP Service to create a service object from scratch.
It is used by network devices , including routers , to send error messages and operational information indicating success or failure when communicating with another IP address , for example, an error is indicated when a requested service is not available or that a host or router could not be reached. For example, every device such as an intermediate router forwarding an IP datagram first decrements the time to live TTL field in the IP header by one. If the resulting TTL is 0, the packet is discarded and an ICMP time exceeded in transit message is sent to the datagram's source address. Many commonly used network utilities are based on ICMP messages. The related ping utility is implemented using the ICMP echo request and echo reply messages. In many cases, it is necessary to inspect the contents of the ICMP message and deliver the appropriate error message to the application responsible for transmitting the IP packet that prompted the ICMP message to be sent. ICMP is a network-layer protocol.
