Allow ping from USG

Because I keep forgetting and it takes me far too much time to go through one of my million sites where I set this up and find the right config…

To allow a USG (Unifi Security Gateway) to reply to external (WAN) ping requests, do the following:

  • Head to the Unifi dashboard -> Settings -> Firewall & Security
  • Create a new rule
  • Type: Internet Local
  • Description: Allow Ping (Echo Request)
  • Rule Applied: Before Predefined Rules
  • Action: Accept
  • IPv4 Protocol: ICMP
  • IPv4 IMP Type Name: Echo Request
  • Apply Changes -> wait ~2 minutes

That’s it…

All this for Smokeping.
