Enabling ICMP allows you to use the ping command to test network connectivity to the appliance from another
computer on the same subnet. This will not enable broadcast pings.
Enabling ICMP makes it possible to ping the appliance from both network interfaces
(external and internal). Unless you suppress ICMP Echo Request traffic using a firewall or other network
device, it will be possible to discover the appliance from the Internet.
To enable ICMP
In the AMC, navigate to System Configuration > Network Settings.
In the Basic section, click the Edit link.
The Basic Network Settings page displays.
In the ICMP section, select the Enable ICMP pings checkbox.
