View Full Version : Multiple ping attacks

19-08-2003, 04:26 PM
I run WinXP Professional, Zone Alarm and AdAware which are constantly updated, and have high-speed cable internet. My problem is that I am receiving over 80 ping attempts to my IP address in under 30 minutes.
These are being successfully blocked at the moment, but I want to know if I can stop them altogether, or at least get the beggars back at their own game!!

You can't stop the pings but you can stop the notifications of them. Not sure where to turn them off but have a sniff around and you will find the setting somewhere.

you can try to talk to your isp to see if they can block. if its random, its hard to tackle.

if someone knows how to do it, I am also interested to know.
