Allow ping not working


(Istvan) #1

NethServer Version: 7.4.1708

I would like to allow ping from LAN. I set the default firewall policy to block everything and I created the rule to allow the ip_icmp service from the green interface, but is not working.
Any ideas?

I added the rule on top. Should it be at the bottom?

It’s not possible via web UI as you can only choose TCP or UDP but you’ll need ICMP protocol. You can realize this with a custom template:

mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/shorewall/rules/

Create /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/shorewall/rules/91ping with following content:

# 91ping
Ping(ACCEPT)   loc   net

Expand the template and restart firewall:

expand-template /etc/shorewall/rules
signal-event firewall-adjust

Now ping from LAN to WWW should work.
