(Optional) Enabling the Ping to a Virtual IP Address

(Optional) Enabling the Ping to a Virtual IP Address


The device allows user devices to ping a virtual IP address for the following purposes:
  • Monitoring the operating status of the master in a VRRP6 group
  • Ensuring that the route between a user device and a network connected through a default gateway that uses the virtual IP address is available

If the ping to a virtual IP address is enabled, a device on an external network can ping the virtual IP address. This exposes the device to ICMP-based attacks. You can use the vrrp virtual-ip ping disable command to disable the ping function.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run undo vrrp virtual-ip ping disable

    The ping to a virtual IP address is enabled.

    By default, the ping function is enabled. The master in a VRRP group responds to ping packets sent to the virtual IP address.

  3. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
