Title: Ping Replys without Request

Hello folks,

i've a bit strange issue in the communication between a Server and his client (a microcontroler).
The controler send "Echo Reply" packets without a corresponding  ICMP requests. Is there another way how this can happen then an program or firmware error? Something like an TCP packet that requests a ICMP Echo par example?

Best Regards
