    My advice is to allow pings - they are useful for faultfinding.

    However, if you want to block pings, you need to decide what to block. Do you want to prevent other users pinging your server, or do you want to block your server from pinging other machines? What about ICMP Unreachable messages - do you want to block them too? Either way, if you follow the links uRock gave, you should be able to work it out. If not, come back and explain exactly what you want to block.

    As for "make Fast connection to Ununtu Server", I know the server likes to do a DNS lookup to find the name of whoever is connecting to it. If the DNS setup is wrong, this can take time to decide it doesn't know the name. It can help to put the name and IP address of clients into either the DNS server or into your server's /etc/hosts file to speed up this name resolution.

    Ah yes, that just changes the current setting. It won't survive a reboot. The file where you make those settings permanent is /etc/sysctl.conf. I guess you need a line adding like:
    Code:
    net.ipv4.icmp_echo_ignore_all = 0

    don't forget about IPv6 if it is in your environment.
