    Try to resolve by unchecking ICMP under Packet Inspection category in advanced firewall settings. The default setting is to prevent DOD denial of service attacks which are very rare for home users. Most all DODs are orchestrated with organized multiple hackers to bring down business sites.

    Disabling "ICMP protocol message checking" in the IDS setup should work. This detection will be adjusted in the next fw module so you shouldn't have this problem with the epfw module 1070 when available.

    Personal Firewall Module 1069 from Eset SS version 5.0.93.0 still has this traceroute issue.
    I was hoping 1070 would be released by now.
