ICMP Address Mask Reply

The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is one of the core protocols of the Internet Protocol Suite. It is chiefly used by the operating systems of networked computers to send error messages indicating, for example, that a requested service is not available or that a host or router could not be reached. ICMP can also be used to relay query messages. It is assigned protocol number 1.

ICMP differs from transport protocols such as TCP and UDP in that it is not typically used to exchange data between systems, nor is it regularly employed by end-user network applications (with the exception of some diagnostic tools like ping and traceroute).

ICMP for Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) is also known as ICMPv4. IPv6 has a similar protocol, ICMPv6.

Famous quotes containing the words reply, mask and/or address:

    Doesn’t that show what an old man I am, when I can say to a mother “I love your daughter,” and not get the reply “what are your intentions, and what is your income?”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    “It was the mask engaged your mind,
    And after set your heart to beat,
    Not what’s behind.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Patience, to hear frivolous, impertinent, and unreasonable applications: with address enough to refuse, without offending; or, by your manner of granting, to double the obligation: dexterity enough to conceal a truth, without telling a lie: sagacity enough to read other people’s countenances: and serenity enough not to let them discover anything by yours; a seeming frankness, with a real reserve. These are the rudiments of a politician; the world must be your grammar.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
