What is ICMP?  The router was set up by someone else; or perhaps even
preconfigured like that when we got it.  I know for certain that no one here

cannot diagnose anything like what you're talking about.

What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you know,

up?! Get this free white paper to understand the real constraints & how to 
overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather than buying more servers.
