Enable ping request function?

  • Hey there,

    Forgive me, I am new to PfSense, so perhaps I'm just missing the option. But is there a way I can enable the pinging of the WAN interface IP? (enable WAN request)

    I did uncheck Block private networks and applied the changes, but that doesn't help:
    Block private networks
    When set, this option blocks traffic from IP addresses that are reserved for private
    networks as per RFC 1918 (10/8, 172.16/12, 192.168/16) as well as loopback addresses
    (127/8). You should generally leave this option turned on, unless your WAN network
    lies in such a private address space, too.

    Currently the PfSense router lies behind a Linux router on, but won't stay that way after I get a site-to-site VPN setup in my test environment just using between the two routers.

  • allow ICMP in WAN RULES

  • Fixed. Awesome. Thanks!
