    Why is NT Kernel system ntosknel want to send out an echo request?

    I got this popup messsage this morning: NT Kernal system (ntosknel) is trying to send an ICMP Type 8 (Echo Request) packet to 192.168.0.1 (which is my router's address).

    1. Why would NT Kernel do this?

    2. Sygate wants to know if I want to allow it. Do I or should I tell Sygate to block it?
