No log entries for external ping in 2.4.4-RELEASE-p1 ?

  • I think I used to see FW log entries from external pings before 2.4.4-RELEASE-p1 release.

    And I don't see anymore.
    Anybody has seen this ?

    Nothing would have changed for that. A few possibilities:

    1. Traffic is dropped upstream before it reaches you
    2. The firewall rules are blocking but not logging the ping
    3. The firewall rules are passing the ping

    If it was being passed, you'd see it in the state table. If it was being dropped but not logged, you could have a manual rule blocking it or maybe somehow your default block rule logging setting was changed.

    Yeah that makes sense.
    Is there a way to see somehow external pings ? I do see replies from the router

  • Do a packet capture on WAN and see what's going on.

    I do see logs from one external IP when pinging and not from others (!?)

    When I do a packet capture on WAN, see ICMP thru DNS:

    13:14:01.534147 IP xx.xx.xx.xx > ICMP echo request, id 42920, seq 9544, length 8
    13:14:01.537601 IP > xx.xx.xx.xx: ICMP echo reply, id 42920, seq 9544, length 8

    they correspond with pings.
    I see no refs to IP addresses

  • I just pinged myself from my VPS (SRC) to my WAN (DST):

    16:32:44.195288 IP SRC > DST: ICMP echo request, id 15515, seq 1, length 64
    16:32:44.195352 IP DST > SRC: ICMP echo reply, id 15515, seq 1, length 64

    Perhaps your pings are being blocked at source? Whatever the reason, they're not making it to your WAN.
