I have a computer that monitors our internet connection by pinging a few outside resources - google, level3, etc etc. It does this by running a continuous ping to those locations. Works fine day after day. However if I reboot the router (usually after a firmware update) it will not allow that client to continue pinging those locations even when the internet connection is up and running. I can ping those locations from other clients but not that client. If I stop the pings I can eventually start them back up again but there's no set amount of time that I have to wait. Sometimes it's 5 minutes for one location, 15-60 for others.
I assume this has something to do with IPS but I do not know where to look. What I'd like is to prevent the UTM from blocking ANY outgoing pings from this particular client.
How about a picture of the Edit of the Interface definition, Jason? When you say "reboot the router" above, do you mean the UTM? What, if anything, do you learn from doing #1 in Rulz (last updated 2019-04-17)?
