Block incoming pings while allowing outgoing pings
Authored by: molero on Aug 27, '03 03:49:55AM

I'm no expert on this, but one of the rules that Brickhouse writes to the ipfw config file and which you cannot change and always comes before any custom rules says:


#################################################
## Allow All ICMP Packets
#################################################
add 2004 allow icmp from any to any via en0

Wouldn't this allow pinging anyhow? Rules are applied top to bottom.
