Failed ICMP from remote connection

Unanswered Question
Aug 21st, 2009

Good morning,

I recall using syntax to enable ping on a source interface, syntax is below. Unfortunately I have something hosed. I see this form of syntax for sla configuration only. I recall using this syntax (or simular) to correct problem with ping from local and remote locations.

ip icmp source-interface fastethernet0/0

Syntax was not used in sla configuration.



I have this problem too.

Hello Tim,

I am sorry but I haven't heard of a command that would allow you to set the source address for ICMP echo packets globally. The only way to set the source IP address in the pings I know of is in the ping command itself, i.e.:

ping source fa0/0

Is this what you are looking for?

Best regards,

Im with peter on this one. I am only aware of ip sla operation and what peter mentioned, sourcing with the ping command.
