Question - EIS - Stealth Mode/Ports

EIS should return "stealth" under normal circumstances. You can also disable ping replies by disallowing the associated ICMP reply. Go to Protection/Firewall and double click the "Ping replies" rule. Switch it from "Allow" to "Block" and your system will no longer reply to pings except from trusted networks.

Hello Fabian,

 

Hmmm...I set it to Block (for EchoReply and even All) and yet, my system still replies to the ping.

 

I already had submitted this issue in the Tracker prior to this thread.

 

If I am configuring the rule set incorrectly, please let me know so I can request a closure of the submitted issue.

 

Thanks,

How do you test the ping? In general all ICMP packets originating from a network that is marked as private will be allowed ("Trusted network traffic (ICMP)" rule) and since it is listed before the "Ping replies" rule by default it takes precedence as rules are applied in the exact order they appear in the rules list.

You are aware that all port tests you do on the internet will NOT scan your actual PC running EIS but the router instead, right? Because only your router is facing the internet. You will have to run port scans and ping tests from a second system or VM connected to your PC via LAN to get any real results.
