Smoothwall problem ..... I think


I have ADSL (using the squid/frog) running though a Smoothwall server (whatever the most recent is. 0.99?). My client pc is win2k pro.

I use a program on the client pc called Rogerwilco which allows me to voice communicate with friends who I play online Quake3 with.
This is the problem .........

Four People are on Rogerwilco

Person A
Person X
Person Y

All is well, everyone can hear and speak to each other.
Then Person B joins, suddenly Person A and Person B cannot hear me. Also, I cannot hear Person X any more!
It is always ok until Person B joins ...... and it's always the same guy. And it's always the same Person A who cant hear me too. It always seems to be the same people. But it seems to happen when this guy joins.

A friend of mine last night did a little testing and found that I was the only one on this Rogerwilco server whos PC was making an ICMP packet request from him. Could this have something to do with it? I read a little last night on this and I understand there is a potential risk in ICMP which smoothwall and/or his machine may be trying to block.

Help me please! It's driving me mad!

Thank u

Is it likely to be this ICMP or am I on a wild goose chase with this one?
