Is it possible to ping the far side of the FWSM ?
i mean is it possible to ping from outside the inside interface of the FWSM
or from the inside ping the outside interface of FWSM.
I read :
Pings to PIX's Own Interfaces
In PIX Software versions 4.1(6) until 5.2.1, ICMP traffic to the PIX's own interface is permitted; the PIX cannot be configured to not respond. You will not be able to ping interfaces on the "far side" of the PIX in any version. In our network diagram, you will be able to ping 10.1.1.1 from 10.1.1.5 or 220.127.116.11 from the outside, but you will not be able to ping 18.104.22.168 from 10.1.1.5, nor will you be able to ping 10.1.1.1, from the outside. Beginning in PIX Software version 5.2.1, ICMP is still permitted by default, but PIX ping responses from its own interfaces can be disabled with the icmp command (that is, a "stealth PIX").
Does it also apply to FWSM ?
