      Notice in my routers logs I keep getting these messages all day and night but the node seems to be working fine. Should I be worried about these messages appearing in my router log:

      [INFO] Sun Mar 14 12:58:54 2010 Blocked outgoing ICMP packet (ICMP type 3) from 192.168.0.196 to 78.60.107.166

      I guess one question is why is your router blocking outgoing ICMP packets. Also what computer is at 192.168.0.196 on your local network? Is it the IRLP node?

        I guess one question is why is your router blocking outgoing ICMP packets.

        Also what computer is at 192.168.0.196 on your local network? Is it the
        IRLP node?

        The IRLP node will sometimes use pings to determine if it is online or
        not. If those packets are blocked, it may or may not work correctly.

        If you can't remove the blocking of outgoing ICMP, I would just ignore
        the messages.
