SRP527 wont answer remote ping

If I ping my SRP527 from the internet it wont answer.  Any previous ADSL gateway/router I have used had an option to Enable/'Disable Remote Ping' but I can't find it on the SRP527.

As this is a fairly unreliable router, which locks up every few weeks, I want to be able to ping it from the Internet on my ADSL static IP address to see if I need to get someone to restart it for me so I can use my VPN when away on business.  I can't find any option to enable this.  I have remote access disabled as it easier to administer ithe network via VPN but that does not seem to make any difference.

Any ideas?

Re: SRP527 wont answer remote ping

If anyone is remotely interested, that's a pun by the way, I found the setting.

Newtork Setup/Firewall/Firewall Filter - uncheck the 'Filter Anonymous Internet Requests' which is enabled by default.
