    The firestartet didnt passed the GRC ShieldsUP test, because it replied to the Ping request. How can I block it?

    What rules are currently in place for ICMP?
    Anything else that could be impacting this, ie. a router?

    Regards,

    it's Preferences>ICMP filtering> then tick Echo reply (pong)

    i have Unreachable ticked too.

    OT and rant
