Hello Avi,

I assume you have an AS/400 with at least V4R3, then go to Operations-
Navigator, "Networks/Protocols/IP Packet Security" and define a filter
rule to deny packets with the ICMP Protocol header comnpletely, or if
you want it a little bit more sophisticated, disable ICMP-echo packets
so that your system doesn't answer any ping-requests.
For further information have a look at:
