The icmp unreach responses happen when someone sends a UDP packet to your computer on a port with no running service (or at least, this is the most likely explanation). Some options: * Set up a firewall to deny the inbound traffic * Configure blackhole(4) to do the same I wouldn't recommend attacking the problem from the point of view of just making the log messages go away, but if you're comfortable with that, then the other post recommendinding syslog-ng might work for you (though I'd recommend configuring a pattern match on the message you want to discard or re-route). -- Chris Cowart Network Technical Lead Network & Infrastructure Services, RSSP-IT UC Berkeley
