Anyone an idea how to configure a firewall so that the system won't reply to a ping (ICMP echo) request?
Ok, thanks. Actually '8 echo-req' was not enabled, but it is still responding to ping requests. I ran the symantec security scanner which identified the problem, it's strange since nowhere in their documentation does Norton mention how to disable it.I know it was to allow ping requests, but I assumed you could work backwards and disable ping requests through basically the same method.
hey David, when I install that firewall.. do I only need to put it on one computer if several computers are sharing the same modem?dduardo said:If it doesn't try ZoneAlarm:
