So you are wanting to bypass your router/firewall/utm and see how your desktop software firewall response to ICMP? Hopefully I am understanding what you want here.Hi, I'm trying to pass the shields up test but it always does the test on my router not on my firewall. If anyone can help me solve this problem very grateful in advance.
Post data: I asked in another forum but do not know how to answer. Thank you.
The OP doesn't understand any of that... he needs step-by-step, "How To" instructions.So you are wanting to bypass your router/firewall/utm and see how your desktop software firewall response to ICMP? Hopefully I am understanding what you want here.
If that's the case, get the gateway of your ISP modem/router via whatismyip in google. Then connect to a hotspot or external network, or even a VPN then try to ping back to your WAN, does it respond? If it doesn't respond then you need to either bridge your isp gear, set disable firewall for true static, or go into settings and enable ICMP passthrough. After that you need to pass ICMP through your UTM 9 or set your local (LAN) IP for bypass/DMZ then rerun the test.
That's pretty much all you need to do either way, but if your ISP is force blocking ICMP and you can't get into it to make changes then you are pretty much out of luck.
This means your ISP is pushing the config out to you and they have pattern that they push to every customer to default the modem/router and if needed reload the statics and configurations. This helps reduce service calls from customers and is usually pushed between 24-72 hours in the middle of night or very early morning hours.I asked my ISP for Port-forwarding, bridge mode and DMZ and they can't do it. And any change I make from the router is automatically cancelled.
