Hi, I have a Sygate Firewall and from time to time get alerts such as this one and I have no idea what to do with them.

 NT Kernel System (ntoskenl.exe) is trying to send an ICMP Type 8 (Echo Request) packet to []. Do you want to allow this program to access the network?

I'm also trying out DSL. Shoud I increase my firewall protection settings now since I"m always on line?  

Could someone please help?

Thank you.
