How to enable ICMP to reply a ping

By design, Vista doesn’t allow any ICMP pass though the firewall and you can’t ping it. However, you may have two options.

A.    You can create inbound rule for ICMP using Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. To do this, please follow these steps.

1)      Open Administrative Tools from Control Panel.

2)      Double-click Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.

3)      Double-click Inbound Rules.

4)      You may find File and Printer Sharing (Echo – ICMPv#-In). The # can 4 for IPv4 and 6 for IPv6.

5)      Decide which one you want to enable and highlight, then click Enable Rule.

B. Whenever the exception for File  and Printer Sharing is enabled, Windows Firewall automatically enable ping.
