CSF causing server Ping timeout
|Posted by hbhb, 07-28-2008, 12:18 AM|
|I just installed a fresh new server with CSF
Soon I find out that my ping keeps dropping. The server was smoothly running, SSH is smooth, Website are loading fine, except I cannot ping my server. I disable SELINUX completely and it still doesn't help.
When I disable CSF, my server ping are responding back!
So I remove CSF installation and reinstall CSF, the same problem appear
How can I solve this issue?
My kernel is 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5PAE running on latest version of cPanel on CentOS 5.1

|Did you install this as part of a package, or did you install it from the source package?

|Check the ping rate in CSF configuration
Increase the rate to 2-3 per second.

|Allow incoming PING
# Set the per IP address incoming ICMP packet rate
# To disable rate limiting set to "0"

|when i change ICMP_IN_RATE = 0 from 1/s, the ping works.
but is it safe?

|it`s safe but not a good way, i think it`s better if you Set this per IP address
