Reply to ping on DDNS

    In the settings in the app there's some for "Block ICMP (Ping)" with settings for the LAN and WAN interfaces. You could switch off this blocking on the WAN interface and it would respond to pings from your Monitor site. You may have to setup something to keep track of your WAN IP separately though.

    I would probably just rely on Firewalla's own network monitoring. It can test your connection and let you know if something is wrong. There's also a "Network Performance" section in the app.

    Their docs on that section are:

    Aaah yes thanks, I didn't see this setup yet. So many options !

    It works when deactivating for WAN.

    But indeed, I didn't dig into what Firewalla can offer on the monitoring front yes, so might not be required in the end :-)
