I want get alarmed when someone icmps me.
I have Windows 95 and MS Winsock in use.
I have problems in Inet due ICMP flood and I want to track who is sending it and send some mail flooders root. I have tested some utils called netstat and arp but I can find any help from those (don't register icmp). There is a util called icmpinfo for linux but is it for Win95 too? Where I could find it?
That ICMP flood is famous flood in IRC where people takeover my channells :( What I should do? Any utils? Firewalls?

One option is NetXray (by cinconet) - It is a network manager, and can show you any kind of packet coming to your machine. The demo version only allows 5 packets to be recorded, but if you are being icmp'ed, (to an extent where you can loose your connection) - icmp packets is all you will see in netxray - you will have the ip of the flooder, and you can mail root at that box. Chances are, if they are responsible admins, some kind of action will be taken
