You would get a better answer if you described your setup...
Do you have a hardware firewall?
What OS do you use?
There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

lick4th there are loads of firewalls available, and most of them have (amongst other features) the icmp request block. I use zonealarm, it's in many ppl's opinion the best fw available (free and $), and it has a very friendly-user interface. If you wanna deal with something more professional yu might wanna try Sygate.

If you are using Windows 2000/XP this can easliy be done using IP security policies.
