How to stop PING

Easiest way is to put an acl on the interface that you want to block it on:

access-list 100 deny icmp any any echo

access-list 100 permit ip any any

You need the permit any any line afterwards to allow all other traffic through.

How to stop PING

Hi john,

I applied the above ACL on router interface i could not ping the internal interface i have VPN connectivity between two offices.

What i want is this that no one can ping my live IP.My internal users can ping external websites i can also ping the router internal interface through VPN.

Re: How to stop PING

Actually, I labbed this up and it works fine for me. Can you post your config and a diagram?

permit icmp 192.168.50.0 255.255.255.0 any

permit icmp 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 any

Re: How to stop PING

Hi,

in your post you are talking about ping from internet to outisde interface of your router or firewall. In last post you mentioned that you are unable to ping inside host or interface from VPN.

So what is your goal?

Re: How to stop PING

Hi,

I mean internal interface not external.Look without above acl i can ping its internal interface via vpn after applying acl i cann't.

my goal is very very simple no one can ping my internet interface mean live IP.my users can ping external websites and i my vpn users can ping its internal interface

Re: How to stop PING

Hi,

could you please post whole config of router? Depends on how is your VPN configured.

I tried reproduce your issue and ACL works for inside hosts to internet(traffic permited) and from internet to public Ip and it also works.

Could not simulate your VPN because don't have your config. What IP pool you assign to VPN users?

Store_RTR#

How to stop PING

John's first ACl is correct.

that will stop pings to the outside interface of your router. but allow pings thru the vpn tunnel.

are you falling into the trap of just pinging from the remote router, which by default will use the outside interface that is not in the vpn. when pinging  from the remote vpn router do ping 192.168.3.254 source vlan1 ( or an ip address that is used in the vpn tunnel)

HTH

How to stop PING

Richard's correct. If you just pinging from the router without sourcing the information, the router will use the public side interface. The public interface won't know how to get to your far side lan interface over the tunnel, so if you source it from your internal interface, it should work fine. Otherwise, ping it from a workstation. I don't see anything wrong in the config other than not seeing the acl that I gave you above. There's nothing applied to the wan side interface according to this config.

HTH,
John

Re: How to stop PING

Hi john

As i told you before the when i applied the below acl on outside interface i cannot ping its internal interface which is 192.168.3.254 over the vpn.

so i cannot ping my internal interface over vpn thats why i removed that ACL.

ip access-list extended OUTSIDE

permit icmp 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 any

permit icmp 192.168.50.0 255.255.255.0 any

permit icmp 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 any

deny icmp any any echo

permit ip any any

exit

int fa0/0

ip access-group OUTSIDE in

end

Re: How to stop PING

Okay,

Try removing the permit icmp statements. They're not needed. Also, when you're pinging the inside interface, are you doing it from the other side of the tunnel on a different router or a host? Can you ping across to another host on the other side of the router's lan interface?

HTH,
John
