My question is: I cannot make it work the ZBF between my internal zones. As you can see above, I've got Zone-Pair: Inside-to-Guest with 'inspect'. Unfortunately, when I tried to ping for the first time, i received:
%FW-6-DROP_PKT: Dropping icmp session GUEST:0 INSIDE:0 due to policy match failure with ip ident 0
It indicated that the traffic going BACK was blocked... WHY? There is 'inspect'
So I created a new pair: Guest-to-Inside and I changed everything to pass. It DID work. But that is not what I wanted! I wanted INSIDE to access GUEST but Guest should not access Inside. I assumed I could do it with 'inspect' but it did now work.
Let me add that I have an exactly the same zone-pair and classes/policies for Inside-to-Outside and it does work with inspect.
Why can I not 'inspect' between my internal zones? Is it because there is no NAT?
Well there is a problem with the communication the host are trying to make, the router with the ZBFW enable will perform a deep packet inspection in order to investigate and confirm if a session will need to be allowed or not.
In this particular traffic you are seeing here the inspection was not succesfull ( I mean it is being inspected just that the traffic did not pass the test ( Inspection). That is why with a pass/pass on the right zones it works like a charm.
As you know that this traffic is between internal zones the pass/pass it's okay ( It keeps being secure as this is between internal host, and you can restricted by using an ACL.

Do not understand what you are trying to say... zone is a zone (how would a router know it is internal zone? no nat? maybe I am not using nat at all?), why doesn't 'inspect' work between internal zones?
On another board someone suggested it was because I tested it with icmp which is stateless..
