Create firewall rule to allow inbound ping

In order to test the configuration, you’ll probably want to be able to use the ping command to ping the server from the Vista client. In order to do this, you will need to allow inbound ICMP ping requests to the server for the test. To do this, you’ll need to create a rule that allows the Vista client to ping the server using the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security MMC.

On the server, open the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security from the Administrative Tools menu.

In the left pane of the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security console, right click the Inbound Rules node in the left pane and click New Rule.
