Firewall Management on Windows 2000 PRO

Hello Experts!

I have learned about Firewall Management on Linux using SME 6.0.  There's a configuration on how to modify ICMP rules wherein you can modify icmpType (echo-reply, destination-unreachable, ... ), and target (ACCEPT, DROP, ...).

My question is : Where can I find this configuration on Windows 2000 PRO ???

Actually, one of my target is I want to disable echo-reply and echo-request.  By the time a specific public IP pings my public IP it will always resulted to "Request timed out".

Do you have any idea on this matter ???

Any help is highly appreciated...

I know of no buit in firewall with windows 2k pro. You could either install a 3rd party firewall solution (software based), or upgrade to xp pro with sp2 and configure the built-in firewall to do the blocking for you......

Third parties like ZoneAlarm will give you the grainularity of control you want. XP SP2 has this to a lesser degree but 2000 is ALMOST with out firewall. It does have M$ IPSEC Rules that you can configure, but it blocks all or nothing with reguard to icmp.
I love the picture on this article, cracks me up everytime: http://www.microsoft.com/serviceproviders/columns/using_ipsec.asp

I should mention- ipsec firewall is good enough to allow you to add certain ip's and what not- so icmp could be blocked for a certain subnet, or even specific host's.
