Thread: enable or disable WAN Ping Respond

  1. #1

    Default enable or disable WAN Ping Respond

    alright, so i have the DIRF-615 wireless router, and just busy setting up security recently. should i enable or disable WAN ping respond. I have googled around and get different answers. Correct me if im wrong, but if i enable it then anyone from the outside who pings my router will be able to pick it up, or is it the other way around?

    Hi snail.

    It is to block icmp packets from the internet to reach the router.
    Note that people can still "pick it up"
    If it has a feature to block web front end admin access from the internet then that should be turned on, but I doubt
    it will be switched on.

    I would suggest you leave the icmp filter off, otherwise you might forget it has been switched off some day in the distant
    future and waste a lot of time troubleshooting the router if needs be.
