Subject: icmptx -s should set icmp_echo_ignore_all and also emulate regular ping
Date: Sun, 09 Jan 2011 21:50:43 +1100
Package: icmptx
Version: 0.2-1
Severity: normal

Instead of having to use a shell script to set things up the icmptx program
should set /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_all to 1.  It should set it
back to it's original value on program exit and ideally it should emulate
the regular ping function.  For any ICMP echo request which doesn't have an
icmptx magic number it should emulate the kernel functionality so that the
host can still be pinged.
