I have block ALL and create rule for authorization for port TCP 80,443,110,995

Internet and mails (sending receiving) work

but i cannot ping,  ping command line does not work anymore

I have authorized port TCP and UDP for 1 and 7, but i could not ping. a website like ping 8.8.8.8

why?
i try to add a firewall to permit ICMP Type 4 for any computer to any computer

but ping do not works also
Did you enable echo response on ICMP protocol? Why is so important ping on your environment?
Ping uses the ICMP protocol so it is not only a port setting.
but there exists many version of ICMP. i should authorize all ICMP version?
The solution is block all ports and open only ports needed.

Generally, it needs :

internet ( port 80,8080 HTTP) , HTTPS : port 443
ftp ( port 20,21)
mail (SMTP,POP  : port 110,25)

It needs to be ensured that all ports (used by applications that connect to internet) are opened

note : SMTP secured and POP secured use other ports

This is the solution, i have tested it for several days. it works, even if user install utorrent or other software, they can not use them
Thats my solution!! create a list with required software that can access to internet and block the rest using firewall.
