There is nothing special that needs done for FreeBSD 6 to respond to pings. Are you using IPFW or ipfilter? You seem to indicate that you're using both, which would not be the best of ideas. Post your firewall rules so list members can have a look. Are you sure the machine that is sending pings is not firewalling off the ICMP responses? -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
