    ICMP type 3 CODE 1 = ICMP Host Unreachable
    Ping is just one type of ICMP (Echo Request)
    This log means that probably one host inside your network tried to reach a
    server that is down, and the router next this server is telling that you
    can't get there. The way it tells you is via ICMP Destination Host
    Unreachable, or ICMP Type 3 Code 1.
