    If in the firewall i enable receive icmp echo from internet.
    Someone can flood DoS my connection example with:
    ping -t -l 5000 myip
    o_O
    Or icmp is only for existence of a computer without re send much connections with bytes.
    answer please :)

    You must mean ICMP type 8, Echo request? Typically on a non-networked, home pc, these ICMP messages can be blocked, inbound. Allowing Echo request outbound is recommended, then you would allow Echo reply inbound.
