Yes, I can ping (client taliesin) from (server zahn).
netstat -r gives:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface * U 0 0 0 eth0

May 17 16:15:32 zahn vmunix: icmp_send: ip_route_output(&rt, iph->saddr 200A8C0, saddr 14040C2, RT_TOS(tos), 0)

This means iph->saddr is, saddr is . was the destination of the original packet that I want
to reject here.
There is currently no route to the address,
only when I am connected to my ISP, that is also the reason why I want to
reject that packet using ipchains.
