 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall] iVPN requires a successful ping of External IP before connecting IPSEC VPN.
 Date:  Mon, 29 Aug 2005 20:55:08 -0700
Firewall Rule: ICMP  *  *  192.168.254.250  *	Result: Fails
Firewall Rule: ICMP  *  *  *  *			Result: Succeeds

Why cant I restrict the rule to the monowall LAN of 192.168.254.250,
rather than having to use *?

Is the successful rule recommended, or does it make my network
significantly insecure?

Thanks, 

Bradley

allow ICMP in a firewall rule on the WAN interface.
