icmp_seq=1 Packet filtered?


Hi,
When i tried to ping to a m/c i got the following response. What does it mean?
From xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx icmp_seq=1 Packet filtered

Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is our gateway.

It means you have firewall that filters ICMP packets. Is it what you want? BTW Filtering ICMP is usually a good idea.

Are you on the inside or the outside of the gateway trying to ping. If you are on the outside then the gateway does not respond to pings. If you are on the inside of the gateway and no pings to gateway or to any point on the internet then other packet filtering is active. Then ping to outside will not work. Should be able to ping to internal gateway but maybe not to the external ip. Confusing yes it is.
