Can't ping using behind firewall
i was trying to ping (from inside the firewall) to machines that are outside my firewall and pinging keeps failing.
if i try to ping that same machine from another computer that is somewhere else in the world, it works fine.

If you are looking for help on the forum because you have a problem:
provide as much information as possible.
(log-outputs, screenshots of config/rules, etc.)
Often a Diagram (ASCII ART ?) can help more than pages of descriptions how your network is set up.
sorry about the lack of details
anyways i figured out what it was
i unchecked the box in the wan section –- Block private networks and everything works perfectly now.
very strange... anyways thanks!

So you where trying to ping a private address? If yes, nothing is strange in that, that's the feature purpose!
When I try pfSense in a virtual lab I have to use private range IP addresses and yes I have to disable that feature to be able to make my tests. In real world, when your pfSense is facing the Internet (it have a public IP address) you should keep that feature enabled.
right now pfsense is setup that it does have a public ip
does the block private address feature block 188.8.131.52 subnet?
