Block IMCP?

We want to block IMCP for better security. We host PBX’s in the cloud and would like this for an extra layer of security. I read the link below, is that still the best method?

Blocking ICMP will not improve security.

If you insist on it though, only block echo requests:

Do not block all of ICMP. It subtly breaks your network.


Agreed do NOT block icmp it is at best security theater. When I scan anything I do a syn scan which tells me you are present on the port of my choosing. During the voipms mess I syn scanned all of their pops on 5060 to see what was responding.

This is is a purely Linux thing. The version of the kernel may matter, but the version of Asterisk is totally irrelevant, as is that of FreePBX.
