1) I would **never** actually post a live IP address, or IP address
range to a mail list -- obfuscate it -- we don't need to know the
actual IP address you've got to work with, and neither does anyone
2) 188.8.131.52/26 corresponds to this:
Address: 184.108.40.206 11010111.01111100.10101111.10 000100
Netmask: 255.255.255.192 == 26 11111111.11111111.11111111.11 000000
Network: 220.127.116.11/26 11010111.01111100.10101111.10 000000 (Class C)
Broadcast: 18.104.22.168 11010111.01111100.10101111.10 111111
HostMin: 22.214.171.124 11010111.01111100.10101111.10 000001
HostMax: 126.96.36.199 11010111.01111100.10101111.10 111110
the (useable) netblock from HostMin: 188.8.131.52 to a HostMax:
184.108.40.206 for a total of 62 hosts.
Is this what you're intending to do?
I have no idea as to why this (the *only*..?) change would suddenly
result in your seeing only icmp traffic.
Is this the only change you've made?
Most people don't type their own logfiles; but, what do I care?
