I have a newly installed ISA 2006 FW. I want to allow a monitoring server to ping my ISA box on the external interface. In ISA 2000 you'd set up an IP packet filter to allow an ICMP ping query from a given IP. Where is the packet filter wizard in ISA 2006?? I can't seem to find it...

You need to add the computer you wish monitor from to the "Remote Management Computers" group in the system policy, you alos need to enable the remote managment rule aswell.

These rules can be found in the firewall options under edit system policy in the tasks tab on the right hand side

OK. So to recap I make a computer entry/element under network entries, then ad that element to the "Remote Management Computers" group. I then edit system policy, and under remote management and ICMP (Ping) i make sure the "Remote Management Computers" is listed in allow from and that the rule is enabled. Right?

That is correct

"Remote Management Computers" is listed by default under the remote managment section.
