Most routers have ICMP requests (replies to pings) disabled as a security feature. This helps to protect from Denial of Services Attacks, and often hides you from scanners. "Out of sight out of mind". Keeping that in mind there is usually an option under the firewall/security detection of the firewall configuration such as deny/allow WAN/ICMP/Ping requests.

Looking at the manual for that unit, pings are definitely denied and there are very detailed configurations just to manage logging and alarms for pings from the internet. You might be able to disable using Configuration > Security Policies > Preferences > Deny Invalid Packets > disable, but this is a security risk as mentioned earlier.

I am using GB-250 for setting up the IPSec VPN tunnel to my remote office. My remote office use the Routefinder as VPN Box.
I have already confiugred the GB-250 for the IPSec tunnel by some how the IPsec tunnel is not getting established.
I want to troubleshoot and enable the tunnel.
Attached is the digarm representing the network. Also the IPSec VPN sec parameters which are configured at the remote office side. I want what configuration i should make on GD-250 to establish the tunnel
 
Let me know what are the other details required to address this problem.

If you have HTTPS access there is little need to enable ICMP replies for testing.
As for the VPN, there are numerous options to configure and complex enough with two identical routers, but it can be more difficult with dis-similar units. I am afraid I am not familiar with either unit enough to assist with the VPN configuration. Perhaps others will be able to assist.
