I tried this at plr's from 0.002 up to 0.47, and did the math: ping is

round fraction of additional failures is due to something I don't yet
understand.  Can anyone explain this result?  Thanks.


Sounds like your rules are also being applied to the ICMP response, as well?

If you have plr = .25, there's a .75 chance that the request will go through; if the request does go through, there will be a .75 chance that the reply will also get back, for a total .25 + .75 * .25 == . 4375 chance of no answer getting through...?
