Hi,

If you’re facing difficulties in pinging systems running in your network which are having Seqrite Solutions installed,

There could be possibilities that Firewall configurations are not configured properly.


There could be 2 reasons behind this scenario.

1. Active Stealth Mode in Seqrite Firewall (Applicable for Seqrite Antivirus Server Edition only )

2. ICMP Rule is not been updated for ping response acknowledgement.


Before proceeding further,

Let me brief you with our feature provided in Seqrite Antivirus Server Edition.


Stealth Mode

Enabling Stealth Mode hides the system in the network making it invisible to others thus preventing attacks.



Configuration Steps for Seqrite Antivirus/Server Edition

1. Open Seqrite Antivirus in your system

2. Select Internet & Network Button

3. Click on Firewall Protection Button

4. Click on Configure Button residing Advanced Settings Tab


5. Select your network profile accordingly to Stealth Mode Active Status.

NOTE: In 10.0.5.9 Build, Stealth Mode will remain OFF for Work Profile


6. Navigate to second tab “Traffic Rules”

7. Double click on ICMP Rule



8. Proceed further to ICMP Settings section by selecting next buttons.

9. Check/Enable Echo Reply and Echo Request for both directions


10. Finish and save all settings.


With these aforementioned steps, ping response should start being served by your endpoint system.
