Default Macintosh pings causing firewall blockings??

On my firewall (zonealarm) every so often it block about 5 or so things in a row, i checked what ip they are comming from and they seem to be comming from my mac computer. Anyone know what's going on, is it just the mac trying to ping the computers on the network??

It's just because they are all on the same network - allow the IP address in Zonealarm, and you wont notice it again..
