Our new ISP needs us to allow ICMP traffic in our firewall to our wan IP Address from their monitoring IP address blocks so they can monitor and ping our circuit.

How is this done? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Configure an inbound ACL which permits ICMP traffic on to the WAN interface of the firewall.

Hi,

Go to:
1. Network
2. Interfaces
3. Select X1 WAN then click on the Edit icon at the end of the line. This will bring interface configuration screen. Then select PING check box.

To implement ACL from their address block you need to create an WAN type address object. Perhaps even address object group.

Then find NAT Policy which says X1 and PING add created address object to the Source/Original. Now you have "Any" so anybody can ping you.

Good luck!

P.S. The latest firmware offers some dedicated  features to limit management access and ping. I never looked at it.
