The ICMP, Internet Control Message Protocol, an extension to the Internet Protocol that is generally used by PING utilities. This protocol is handy for generation of error messages, test packets, and informational messages related to IP.
It is different from TCP and UDP protocols by both the purpose and implementation. RFC792 defines the ICMP.
