Sonicwall GVC - Ping clients?

OK, not too sure what  I have wrong here.  I just want to be able to ping endpoints on my Sonicwall GVC (Global VPN Client).

Connectivity between the VPN subnet and my LAN subnets is fine.  Just can't ping.  I do get ping replies when pinging from the VPN device into my LAN.

For testing, I created two firewall rules:
From LAN to VPN Allow Any Any...
From VPN to LAN Allow Any Any...

Still no ping.  Running the ping directly on my Sonciwall Firewall, still no reply.

Does the Device on the VPN have a software firewall blocking?

Awarding points, although it probably wasn't a local firewall.  Not too sure what it was, but pings are now passing
