I discovered this weird output when I was trying to diagnose an FTP issue on my PIX firewall. I ran a debug icmp trace and got the following output that repeats endlessly. Any ideas as to what this is all about. Our IP address is the 205.206.x.x value.

the 69.0.0.88 belongs to a SBC ISP in Conneticut and the 192.168.147.152 seems to be coming from a private party
