ICMPv4 / ICMPv6 Echo Requests for UAG DirectAccess Production RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working from this deployment guide to help guide our production installation of UAG DA, and in Step 1H says to create FW rules for ICMPv4 and ICMPv6 Echo requests in the Default Domain Policy. I did this in LAB without issue and everythign worked fine of course. The AD team asked me if I really needed these FW rules enabled on our internal servers and clients. I believe I will need this for not only Teredo connectivity back into our corp network, but also for troubleshooting connectivity problems with remote DA Clients back to our corpnet. Can you help me understand the need for this, and best way to go about this in a production environment when ....

    • IPV4 internal network
    • IPV6 turned off on our internal DCs (W2K3 and W2K8 R2)
    • servers and clients have their local Domain FW turned off through policy
