ICMP problem

DHIA AHMED 1 Reputation point

I have site to site VPN network. My problem is that, when I do ping between PCs form site to site the ping works only between PCs with any windows os other than windows 10.

Note: when I do ping form the local network to windows 10 it works. Windows 10 only allows ping from the local subnet !

Can you help me with that ?

Windows 10 Network

    Hello @DHIA AHMED

    If the issue is specifically with Windows 10 and other things like firewalls and routing has been checked, also assuming that this is a hostname ping, not IP, there are 2 settings in the registry of Windows you can test. These are specific to Windows 10, which would explain the behavior:

    (*always take a backup of your registry before applying any changes)

    DisableSmartNameResolution (DWORD)

    In registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\DNSClient.
    The value is 1 to disable, 0 to enable smart resolution.

    DisableParallelAandAAAA (DWORD)

    In registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache\Parameters.
    The value is 0 to enable, 1 to disable DNS A and AAAA queries from executing in parallel on all configured DNS servers, with the fastest response being theoretically accepted first.

    Otherwise, I would ask you to take a traceroute, nslookup, between 2 affected machines, to see if there is any other routing involved.

    Hope it helps!
    Best regards,

    I'd check these are Enabled for the network profile your connection uses.

    Thank you all for the fast reply.
    unfortunately, Neither the first nor the second answer solved my problem. I still can't ping any windows 10 PCs. The ping is working between devices on both sites except windows 10 devices.
    NOTE: The version of windows 10 is 2004

    Hello again,

    Also, best thing is to check connectivity,

    Go to Azure --->>Network Watcher's,--->>IP Flow verify

    enter source and destination of windows 10 machine.

    Also did you change the Firewall rule (IcMP) both in Azure as well as in Windows 10 machine ?

    I recommend you to cross check NSG, try by allowing port 3389 and take RDP
