Odd log entry
I noticed the following odd log entry in my Zywall 2+:
router reply icmp packet: icmp(source quench)
Source ip was my wan ip address
destination ip: 22.214.171.124
I've never seen this before and only thing I can think of is that I just got a Motorola smart phone recently and this IP appears to be Motorola. But does anyone know what this means or what it is doing?

Do you mean odd in
Line 1 - xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
as opposed to even
Line 2 - xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If so, one line is as valid as another.
if not, I presume you are talking about a strange, bizarre, unexplainable entry.
My experience is that the LOG is chalkerblock full of weirdness, so I avoid it to maintain sanity.
As to the log entry above, dont worry, I didnt take any data from your phone, I was simply reading your text messages. Have a nice day!

Thanks for that.
So basically the log entry is saying that a PC on my network (probably my phone due to the remote IP but not necessarily) was sending out too much data for the router to handle too fast to that remote address, so the router told it to slow down?
Hmm. If so then what was it sending? I wasn't even using my phone at that time.
OK new similar one today.
router reply icmp packet: icmp (source quench)
source: my wan ip
Anyone else noticing this?

Google can only spy on you at a certain rate. Perhaps your PC is sending personal data too fast

Google is the biggest SPY [invasion of privacy] network on this earth. I keep wondering WHY even the geeks do not get this message. But that's the way its is, always has been and may always be!
Moto is now part of Google and ANDROID is the back door to many.

Oh yeah well of course. It is a Motorola phone and as such is now a Google phone I guess. So yes there are Google services running. Just curious as to what they were doing and why sending so much data that it choked my router.
But I guess that is a discussion best left for the security forum. My reason for posting here was to make sure that nothing was wrong with the router and figure what it was that was doing this. I think, with your help, I have figured this out now and it seems that my router is fine and it appears to be my phone phoning home.
Now I have to go to the security forum and see why, what and how to stop it.
Thanks all. Much appreciated.

Many phone require a gmail account.
This phone does not require a gmail account. I have been using this phone for a few months now and I don't have a gmail account.

It's Google product. I'd be more surprised if it *wasn't* phoning home.
