Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yes, I can ping other hosts outside of my network (it doesn't appear that there are any other hosts on my network, which is really odd since I live in a complex with about 600 other apartments).
I believe I read the same part of the tutorial you were refering to. According to the tutorial, " The following reject types are currently valid: icmp-net-unreachable, icmp-host-unreachable, icmp-port-unreachable, icmp-proto-unreachable, icmp-net-prohibited and icmp-host-prohibited. The default error message is to send an port-unreachable to the host."
I get a "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted" but I suppose you could set it up to be a custom message, too.
Very strange how 2 different ISP policies differ. When I was with AT&T Broadband they didn't care what I pinged or scanned. Now I'm with Qwest and they have me on private 10.0.0.0/24 network and won't give me static IP because they no longer support them. BS IMHO.
Ok, now I'm really confused. I hooked up my labtop (Windows XP)directly to the modem and now I can ping the gateway. Hell, I can even telnet to it. Can anyone tell me why I wouldn't be able to do this from my router?
