computer configuration --> Windows Settings --> System and security --> Windows Firewall --> Advanced settings --> Inbound rules --> New rule --> custom rule
in Protocol and ports: Protocol: ICMPv4,  customize, choose "Specific ICMP types", check the box "echo request"
 next... next... give it a name i.e. "Ping Echo Request" and a description i.e. "respond to ping requests" and save it
