I’m doing IT support at a location where they are blocking all inbound ICMP so if I try to ping externally I don’t get any replies. This makes troubleshooting some issues a real pain in the butt. As far as I know the firewall should be set up to not reply to ping requests and that’s it. Is there any security purpose for blocking all incoming ICMP? Can you list sources so I can understand better why this was implemented or send me sources so I can convince them to adjust these policies to allow originating return pings?
