“Nobody” Can Ping My Windows 10 Computer

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/10

A problem with ICMP can be that you if you allow File and Printer Sharing, that ICMPv4 and ICMPv6 for both Private and Public networks are only allowed for the Local subnet.

For Domain networks, however it is allowed for Any subnet.

You can see the difference in this picture:

The solution presented at [WayBack] Nobody Can Ping My Computer – Technet MSDN library is to add a less restrictive set of rules:

  1. In the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in, click Inbound Rules in the tree, and click New Rule in the Actions Pane.
  2. Click Custom and click Next.
  3. Click All programs and click Next.
  4. For Protocol type, select ICMPv4.
  5. Click Customize for Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) settings.
  6. Click Echo Request, click OK, and then click Next.
  7. Under Which local IP address does this rule match? and for Which remote IP address does this rule match click either Any IP address or These IP Addresses. If you click These IP addresses, specify the IP addresses and click Add, then click Next.
  8. Click Allow the connection, and then click Next.
  9. Under When does this rule apply?, click the active profile, any or all profiles (Domain, Private, Public) to which you want this rule to apply, and then click Next.
  10. For Name type a name for this rule and for Description an optional description. Click Finish.
  11. Repeat steps for ICMPv6, selecting ICMPv6 for Protocol Type instead of ICMPv4.

You can also add these rules using the netsh advfirewall command as shown at [WayBack] How to Allow Pings (ICMP Echo Requests) Through Your Windows Firewall
