Re: Internet addresses

1. ICMP traffic to your dsl router interface is prohibited

2. Your ISP has set up some sort of packet filtering for incoming packets

3. etc.

Re: Internet addresses

Does that mean if they are doing that I can still connect to it then ?

Re: Internet addresses

It is difficult to answer - depends on what you mean by saying "connect to it".

If icmp only is prohibited - then, probably yes, you can connect through other protocols - telnet, ssh, rdp, http, https, etc. If connection traffic is filtered by your provider - then this might not be possible. Too many unknowns. Can you do trace route to that dsl router ? See where it stops.

HTH,

Alex
