I am searching those packet capture online but hard to find...

ICMP source quench
ICMP alternative host address
ICMP information request
ICMP with unexpired source route option

Is anyone willing to share some packet capture if there is any available. Some of those messages are obsolete, kind of difficult to find.

thanks in advance!

Some time ago, Jakub Zawadzki ran on the capture files in the Wireshark menagerie and posted the output here. You can try searching for files containing ICMP packets and download them.

A better solution might be if someone in the Wireshark core could work with Joe McEachern and the cloudshark folks to take him up on his offer for a cloudshark appliance, assuming his offer still stands. See I don't think I'm the guy for this.

A web search for something like "simulate icmp messages" night be a better approach...
