    Hello,
    In a Homemade soft, i check avaible ip on the network by checking the reply
    of a ping.
    I use ICMP Echo command of IP Helper api.
    It works perfectly on vista when firewall is enable but when i disable it
    something strange happen.
    My soft scan an IP range, and in this configuration, firewall disable, it
    find reply on all IP checked.
    To verify this result, i try manualy to check those IP by ping command in
    cmd and the result is none IP reply.
    It's very strange, may there is a problem in default ICMP configuration when
    firewall is disable.
    After a long search on net, i don't realy find something that can explain
    the origin of this problem.
    So i come here to ask you some help.
    May someone can have an idea to resolve it.
    I'm open on all opinion or advice.
    Thanks for all.
    Best regards
