If you can send the list the entire tcpdump / snort trace it will be great.
Also, if you wish to have an explanation about ICMP Unreachables you can
read chapter 2 in my paper ICMP Usage In Scanning avilable from:

http://www.sys-security.com/archive/papers/ICMP_Scanning_v3.0.zip
The file size is ~ 1.75mb when zipped

http://www.sys-security.com/archive/papers/ICMP_Scanning_v3.0.pdf
The file size is ~ 5.39mb.

Hi!

Could somebody enlighten me what this is all about:

Jun 10 20:10:31 stahlw06 snort[19661]: ICMP Unreachable IP short header (18
bytes)
Jun 10 20:10:31 stahlw06 snort[19661]: ICMP Unreachable IP short header (18
bytes)

I keep seeing that about twice a day, each day. And I think it is time
to find out what is causing this...
