Newbie Question : Block ping

Jump to solution

Can someone confirm if I apply the attached policy to workstations it will block ping from being used ?

Becuase I've applied and its not blocking so I must be doing something wrong.

getting a little further. I created my own rule for ICMP and didn't use the default. Now it works OK. So it was obviously something to do with the default rule for ICMP. No need for a reboot either. Just wake up agent and sent latest policy and its instant.

Glad i got that sorted. 

Thanks for you responses.

What if you move the policy to above your mcafee communication task? Can you also expand on the rule you have set for allow icmp = block? i will test today also

That's has high as it can go. You can't put above the Mcafee one.

Ive just noticed that I need to reboot the clients for any policy changes to apply and work.

Even when I wake up clients and send policy it doesnt work.

Weird.
