Hi Cheyenne,

1) Navigate to the 'Firewall » Rules' page.
2) Bottom right, click on add new rule (plus button). You can mouse over all 
of the buttons to find out what each does if you are unsure.
3) Add the rule. My suggestion is to have a go at first. That's all I did 
when I started. FYI you may want to permit only certain types of ICMP 
packets; I just permit all. Others may suggest permitting certain types 
only. I'd love to hear what the general consensus is on this, because from 
my own search I concluded it's not much of a worry to permit ICMP. 
Eitherway, if you're still not sure on the options for the rule, see
