20030916:Netcheck Results



Hi Arnold,

Netcheck uses ping and traceroute, for its use..

PING is part of ICMP so I do not think the netcheck results wold be useful
if not accepting any ICMP traffic....

How has this affected the LDM..I see quite a blip on the 14th, but is
seems smooth now..

Please see:

Let us know if we can help further..

Cheers,

Jeff
