You may also will want to check out the following files -- assuming that
you're runnng *nix:
 
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_all
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ratelimit
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ratemask

A quick find on google for these files will give you a little more insight.
