|Thank you Stuart, and Jennifer for your reply.|
I had a look at my router and I can’t see a specific ICMP setting anywhere. But I did notice that there is a checkbox for ‘allowing ping’, and that checkbox is checked. I have a netgear wireless router.
However I still can’t ping my IP address over the internet.
Jennifer, I’m just trying to ping my IP to see if my PC is reachable and up and running, because I would like to access my home PC over the internet. I’d like top access music, files, webpage, etc… I have apache web server setup and running. It works well from my home network. I have also set up an SSH server, for added security. It’s a hobby for me, just learning at the moment. But I can’t seem to access my PC at the moment outside my home network.
Thank you for your patience.
