My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
Allow ICMP Ping through Windows firewall from command line
Leaving this here for the next time I can’t remember how to do it.. Windows by default ships with the firewall slammed shut (and rightly-so) however if you can’t easily see the console of the machine like if it’s in Azure sometimes it’s hard to figure out when it’s up and ready to go – I have a jump box in Azure that I power-up when I need it.
so, to do-so you need to run this command once the first time you use it then, ICMP (Ping) will be allowed for evermore
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Allow ICMP Ping" protocol=icmpv4:8,any dir=in action=block
