Question about Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem (55900003)

My zoom x6 modem doesn't block pings (ICMP). How do I configure?

When I try using "shields up" to test my firewall, it fails the ping test, responding. I cannot find any way to configure it to prevent this.

2) Enable Advanced Firewall Filter.
3) Click on Security Policy Configuration.
4) Click on Policy Rules for "Add Firewall External-Internal Filter Rules."
5) Click on Add Policy Rule.
6) In the row labeled "Protocol," select "neq" and enter ICMP where it says "(Protocol Number or Name)."
7) In the row labeled "Select the direction to filter packets," select BOTH.
8) In the row labeled "Filter Action," select DENY.
9) Click on Save Changes and repeat 1) through 5).
10) In the row labeled "Protocol," select "eq" and "TCP." Below, select BOTH for direction, and ALLOW for filter action.

12) In the row labeled "Protocol," select "eq" and "UDP." Below, select BOTH for direction, and ALLOW for filter action.

I have a couple of questions

1. What gateway are you pinging?
2. From what device are you sending the ping?

If you are trying to ping the gateway on the modem/router provided by your internet service provider then you will not get a ping response, this is because it's configured not to respond.

CIsco ASA 5510 fire wall problem


Hi Thangaraj_j,

Can you provide the topology of your setup? Can you provide also the following:

- running configuration of the ASA
- ip address of the server (what kind of server is this? what tcp/udp port does it use)
- show xlate
- show con
- show log

Just a quick try, have you tried clearing the translation and the arp table?

commands to do it:

clear xlate
clear arp
clear local

Let me know and if it still doesn't work, try to ping the server from the pc clients and see if ping does work. (you need to allow icmp to pass thru in case you are denying it for testing purposes) Just send me the additional information given above.


Regards,

Help with installing a sonicwall soho tzw no software.


Hello dlewis2900, What I want you to do is to reset your router by locating the Reset button on the back of the SOHO TZW next to the LAN connection. Using a pointed object, press and hold the Reset button for 5-10 seconds. All settings are returned to the factory default settings including the password and the default LAN IP address of 192.168.168.168. The I want you to reenter your ISP information and configuration settings. Once this is done try to ping your gateway (ISP gateway router) address. Then try to ping the internet try to ping this address: www.dslreports.com This is the quickest way to get back to where you want to be without trying to redo a lot of configurations.
