While trouble shooting an incomming connectivity problem, I discovored that I can't seem to get an incomming PING request to come in through the router. I have my PC in the DMZ. The PC's firewall is set to respond to pings. The PC responds to pings on the LAN. Using remote desktop to control an outside computer, I send a PING request to my own IP. If Tomato's "Respond to PING" box is checked, the remote computer receives PING replies from Tomato. If I uncheck the "Respond to PING", the replies stop, so I know it's not an internet routing / ISP problem. Why doesn't the DMZ setting pass the outside ping request to my computer and allow my computer to respond ?
