Ping attacks !!

Hello all,

Is there any way to stop Ping attacks on the MWG appliance ?! I know the way to stop it for all (Configuration >> Network protection)...but actually I need to stop it for some IP ranges..and allow it for others !

any suggestion

It would not be supported in any way, but you could write some iptables rules to allow/block certain types of ICMP traffic from different sources.  There is a decent source of how to do that here.  Again, this is not supported in any way, and I would not expect it to last thorugh upgrades, or possibly evne reboots.  A much better way would be to make the change on your firewall.
