Q

Block ICMP messages and echo replies to ping requests

This Content Component encountered an error
Thanks for the great tip on how to block inbound traffic to ports 139 and 445 on workstations. Is there a similar security rule/policy that blocks Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) messages and prevents the workstation from sending an echo reply to a ping request? If so, how can I do it? Thanks in advance.
Yes, one of the default IP Filters available to you will affect "All ICMP Traffic," allowing you to either allow or deny that traffic to or from a given host, IP or subnet.
