I've created a point to point VPN between 2 locations. The tunnel is up and both firewalls seem correct. from location "A" i can ping devices at location "B".  From location "B" . I can can only ping the Lan port on the firewall. None of the other devices respond. I used RDP to connect to a PC on the network and can ping all devices including the VPN firewall. I know that all of the devices are on the same switch/ segment. I  just cant see them through the VPN. Help.
Thanks

Seems like the firewall at site A is blocking imcp. Check the acl policies, you may need to add imcp to the allow rule or create one.

Hi markdouenias,

Make sure the appropriate Interfaces have checks next to Ping. Then make sure the appropriate Access Rules are not blocking Ping. You may want to add a rule explicitly for Ping just as a test to the Zone which you are trying to access. Also, check the client firewalls (Windows or otherwise)...by default ICMP is blocked on Windows machines.

Let me know how it goes!

Thanks for the input. It was driving me crazy. There was another gateway on the same network and the phone vendor never changed to the new gateway. SO when I pinged the configuration was replying to the wrong gateway. Everything is working fine. Thanks again
