l8nc ping requests not accepted?

I have created an account with l8nc to monitor my connection. Problem is: I get 100% packet loss even though my router is configured to let ICMP ping requests through from l8nc's IP address, and I have similarly configured my desktop's firewall to accept incoming ICMP requests?

Am I missing anything?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

l8nc ping requests not accepted?

Hi,

What sort of router are you using? I had the same problem with my DG834G when I tried setting up l8nc, for some reason it wouldn't save the changes and I had to update the firmware to the latest version.

I am using a D-Link DSL-G624M, and all parameters seem to be properly saved + the firmware is the latest available.

Not sure what to do next.

Problem solved. The firewall rule allowing ICMP pings hadn't taken into account that my router's LAN IP address had changed from factory settings.
