Firewall config for ping RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have configured the firewall as per the instructions 'To enable ICMP Echo Request for ICMPv4 and ICMPv6' on TechNet.


    This is for a game. The game runs normally and pings are OK when I disable Windows Firewall, but no configuration I have tried allow the game to get pings.


    Basically, I set 2 Incoming rules. 1 for ICMPv4 and 1 for ICMPv6. Each set for Echo Request, Allowed, Private, Any for all other settings. Both have the full program path.


    Have tried a whole bunch of variations, but none work.


    Is it so hard to set up the Firewall to allow pings? Any pointers to assist would be appreciated,
