FC4 -- icmp open socket error



Hi All, 
I recently did a clean install of FC4 on my computer and everything has
been working fine until about an hour ago.

I restarted my computer and it failed to connect to our network DHCP
server, displaying the error, "icmp open socket: permission denied"
during the boot stage. I don't understand why this has suddenly started
occurring. It has been connecting fine all week.

I rebooted into Windows XPoo to ensure that our DHCP hadn't died. XPoo
finds and connects to the DHCP server no problem at all.

If you guys would like I can post my iptables file, if you think it will
help provide some answers.

I have, for the time being, statically set my network details in order
to still gain network access.

Thanks for your assistance.

Cheers, 
Tony Crouch
