    DESCRIPTION

         ICMP is the error and control message protocol used by IP and the Inter-
         net protocol family.  It may be accessed through a "raw socket" for net-
         work monitoring and diagnostic functions.  The proto parameter to the
         socket call to create an ICMP socket is obtained from getprotobyname(3).
         ICMP sockets are connectionless, and are normally used with the sendto(2)
         and recvfrom(2) calls, though the connect(2) call may also be used to fix
         the destination for future packets (in which case the read(2) or recv(2)
         and write(2) or send(2) system calls may be used).
    
         Outgoing packets automatically have an IP header prepended to them (based
         on the destination address).  Incoming packets are received with the IP
         header and options intact.
    
       Types
         ICMP messages are classified according to the type and code fields
         present in the ICMP header.  The abbreviations for the types and codes
         may be used in rules in pf.conf(5).  The following types are defined:
    
               Num  Abbrev.         Description

       MIB Variables
         The ICMP protocol implements a number of variables in the net.inet.icmp
         branch of the sysctl(3) MIB.
    
         maskrepl        (boolean) Enable/disable replies to ICMP Address Mask
                         Request packets.  Defaults to false.
    
         maskfake        (unsigned integer) When maskrepl is set and this value is
                         non-zero, it will be used instead of the real address
                         mask when the system replies to an ICMP Address Mask
                         Request packet.  Defaults to 0.
    
         icmplim         (integer) Bandwidth limit for ICMP replies in pack-
                         ets/second.  Used when icmplim_output is non-zero.
                         Defaults to 200.
    
         icmplim_output  (boolean) Enable/disable bandwidth limiting of ICMP
                         replies.  Defaults to true.
    
         drop_redirect   (boolean) Enable/disable dropping of ICMP Redirect pack-
                         ets.  Defaults to false.
    
         log_redirect    (boolean) Enable/disable logging of ICMP Redirect pack-
                         ets.  Defaults to false.
    
         bmcastecho      (boolean) Enable/disable ICMP replies received via broad-
                         cast or multicast.  Defaults to false.
    
         reply_src       (str) An interface name used for the ICMP reply source in
                         response to packets which are not directly addressed to
                         at least 8 bytes (per RFC792) and at most the maximal
                         space left in the ICMP reply mbuf.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

         A socket operation may fail with one of the following errors returned:
    
         [EISCONN]          when trying to establish a connection on a socket
                            which already has one, or when trying to send a data-
                            gram with the destination address specified and the
                            socket is already connected;
    
         [ENOTCONN]         when trying to send a datagram, but no destination
                            address is specified, and the socket has not been con-
                            nected;
    
         [ENOBUFS]          when the system runs out of memory for an internal
                            data structure;
    
         [EADDRNOTAVAIL]    when an attempt is made to create a socket with a net-
                            work address for which no network interface exists.
