How can I enable Ping(ICMP) on Azure?

0 votes

In Azure role, I cannot ping out.

D:\Users\somepinch>ping www.google.com

Pinging www.l.google.com [209.85.143.104] with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 209.85.143.104:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

I did surf on internet to come up with a way based on a suggestion, and even tried it and still cannot ping out:

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="ICMPv6" dir=in action=allow enable=yes protocol=icmpv6

Can anyone suggest me a working method to overcome this?

I did end up with the same issue, and there is a solution for it, just like always:

When setting up your Virtual machine you can assign it an "Instance IP address". Once that has been configured, you can enabled ICMP in and out in the local firewall. You will then be able to ping out of your Azure VM and also use tools like "traceroute".

I had a similar problem. Needed to assign public IP to Azure VM in order to enable ICMP. I used set-azurepublicip and update-azurevm and resolved the issue.
