ForeFront Theat Management Gateway 2010 - Unable to ping external IP address of local host external ip address.
Posted on 2010-11-29
I've believe I've done everything necessary to allow my any pc to ping the external interface on the external host but I seems to have an issue.
My server has 4 nics.
NIC1: Internal Clients 192.168.1.x
NIC2: Perimeter Clients 192.168.2.x (our wireless clients)
NIC3: External 165.138.134.x (Internet using our T1)
NIC4: Insight Internet Provider (Internet using Broad Band, mainly for wireless clients)
I've setup dual host ISP's and that seems to be working just fine.
When I ping each of the server's nic's I get a response back from all of them but the 22.214.171.124 ip address. I've bound 126.96.36.199 to the server and I can ping that address just fine but not the .1 ip address.
I've setup ICMP (Ping) under Remote Management and ICMP under Diagnostic Services to allow from all networks(and local host). I intend to turn that off after I verified that everything is working as expected.
Any ideas? I've already setup an access rule for ping to be allowed from and to all networks(including local host).
p.s. I setup a log to monitor my pc and all my traffic is showing up except when I ping the 188.8.131.52 address. Nothing at all is showing up.
