Cant Ping my firebox55e

By XnavyDK ·
here is my config.
all of my servers go out through a 8port switch to an antenna to my ISP.

I have everything on the firebox set up correctly as far as the external IP, gw and dns and I cant ping it. It seems to be talking, the light is flashing. To whom I have no idea.

Ive tried diff ports on the switch to no avail, I set up a test on each port and can ping the IP on the test machine. So its not the switch.

I've switched cables

I think its a conflict between the switch and the firebox. And its the only theory I cannot test without taking down the internet.

when I finally get it working it will be rewired to antenna/firewall/8port/.

What address are you trying to ping

by robo_dev In reply to Cant Ping my firebox55e

and from where are you trying to ping it?

I assume you're trying to ping the internal interface or the firewall from a box on the internal network?

On a firewall you cannot typically ping the external interface IP from the internal network.

or here:

Most firewalls will be set to ignore ping requests, by default, no matter where they originate.
