Block incoming pings while allowing outgoing pings
Authored by: molero on Aug 27, '03 10:21:02AM

Just tried it out - and yes, the default BrickHouse rule indeed allows for pinging your machine, no matter what rules you might add later.
To get it right, you need to remove this line from the ipfw config file:

add 2004 allow icmp from any to any via en0
