I would like to configure Netscreen firewall so that it allows the ping request to be made only from internal and few other IP addresses. Please let me know if this can be done.

I want to enable ping only from the network where netscreen firewall is and from my office location but not from anywhere else.

As stated by Jabii, create a policy from trust to untrust with the ping-group, allowing all.

Cheers,

set address "(Interface)" "Office_Location" 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.255 "Office_Location"
set address "(Interface)" "Office_Location2" 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.255 "Office_Location2"
Set address "(Interface)" "Office_Network" 2.2.2.0 255.255.255.0 "Office_Network"

set group address "(Interface) "GRP: Office_Location"
set group address "(Interface)" "GRP: Office_Location" add "Office_Location"
set group address "(Interface)" "GRP: Office_Location" add "Office_Location2"

set policy id 1 from "(Interface)" to "(Interface)"  "Office_Location" "Any" "PING" permit log
set policy id 2 from "(Interface)" to "(Interface)"  "Office_Network" "Any" "PING" permit log
set policy id 3 from "(Interface)" to "(Interface)"  "GRP: Office_Location" "Any" "PING" permit log


You can also make ping a member of a service group with other ports allowed too. But these examples should get yo going.

jabiii,

Thanks for your answer. I have a question if you can help. We have Netscreen 5XP and after upgrading Windows 2003 server, we are facing issues where Windows 2003 Network card connected to WAN stop responding time to time. Upon reset it starts working again and is pingable from outside. I have removed SP1 and did not experience any issues after that. The MS KB article where this is described is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899148/. Should I get a new netscreen firewall or just upgrade NS5XP OS to 5.X.X from 4.X.X?

Much thanks,
Nauman.
