OSPF doesn't use ICMP for its Hello packets. What's the access list you configured? If you can post the config.

Carl,

OSPF is transported directly over IP and has its own protocol number, which is 89.

Hope this helps. Please rate if it does.

By the way, here's where you can find a list of assigned protocol numbers:

Re: denying ping on router

Carl,

Did you specify an explicit "permit ip any any" at the end of the ACL? Remember that there is always an implicit "deny ip any any" at the end of any ACL. That is probably why your ospf adjacency went down.

Hope this helps,
