Enable ICMP request accepting on Windows 2008 server

My local server showing down status on Nagios even though it is live. I have enable the firewall and I did not find any option to enable ICMP request on firewall so quickly ( I’m newbie to 2008 server series 🙂

During the goofgle search I found a simple command does everything fine rather than search and finding using mouse.

There is two way,

1. open the command window and execute the command
C:>netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8
for disabling $ netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8 disable

2. Run–>firewall.cpl –> windows firewall with additional security–>
enable “file and printer sharing (ICMP requestv4)
