Block ping requests

I was using GRC’s “Shields Up” Shields UP!! — System Error to check vulnerabilities on my computer and all passed except the following.

“Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) — Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since “Ping” is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation.”

How can I configure Comodo Firewall to block ping requests?

You can go to Firewall → Stealth Ports Wizard and select Block all incoming connections and make my ports stealth for everyone.

If you still get the same results after doing this, then you are behind a router and it is your router that is replying to the Ping request, not your software firewall. To block the Ping request, you’d need to check your routers documentation.

Thanks for the info.
