RAX80 IPv6 ICMP Filter Option


RAX80 IPv6 ICMP Filter Option

Firmware: V1.0.1.70_1.0.30

GUI Language: V1.0.1.70_2.1.46.1


The very first time I set up this router, yesterday, there was a setting for IPv6 ICMP filtering that had 3 options; none, UDP only, and UDP and TCP. This didn't match the ICMP option listed in the User Manual. I wasn't thinking and set it to the latter.


Now that I want to disable it, that option doesn't show up anywhere I can find. I've even done a factory reset and that didn't help.


How can I find it/get it back?

Re: RAX80 IPv6 ICMP Filter Option

One other thing that's changed since the first setup...


ADVANCED -> Setup -> WAN Setup -> Respond to Ping on Internet Port


was initially unchecked. Once I checked it, it no longer responds to a mouse click to uncheck it. 


Perhaps this is related to not seeing the IPv6 ICMP Filter choice anymore?


At any rate, I found a here post detailing the option in debug.htm and enabled it, which allows the IPv6 test sites to pass the filter check.
