I have a new Firewalla Gold Plus (in service for a couple weeks) that is connected to a bridged Motorola 8702 cable modem connected to Wowway.
I do have to mention that the Firewalla took over administrator duties from the Motorola and accepted an ISP based IP with NO ISSUES. Thankfully!
The ICMP Ping issue at hand is;
Engaging the ISP-1 WAN port option under Block ICMP (Ping) via Android App does absolutely NOTHING.
With ISP-1 ICMP blocked, as a test from a Verizon cell tower connected tablet, I can ping the WAN IP receiving 4 replies or more.
If I ping the same ISP provided IP from inside the private non-routable network, I receive a <1ms response.
Either of these scenarios should NOT happen.
Ignore which position the ISP-1 ICMP option is in (because it literally does nothing, I tried every option).....
Slide the LAN1 ICMP block option to active and any ICMP ping to WAN IP FAILS, whether pinging from outside or inside the network.
All inside pings to the non-routable Firewalla private address also FAIL.
It looks to me like the LAN1 ICMP switch is doing both jobs when it should only be doing one job while the ISP-1 switch is taking a long smoke break.
Can this be looked into and explained or corrected?
