Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

The undo icmp receive command can be used to disable the device from receiving ICMP messages for the purpose of improving network performance or enhancing network security.
  • On secure networks, the device can normally receive ICMP messages.In the case of heavy traffic on the network, if hosts or ports are frequently unreachable, the device will receive a large number of ICMP packets, which causes heavier traffic burdens over the network and degrades the performance of the device.

  • On insecure networks, network attackers often make use of ICMP error messages to spy on the internal structure of the network.

Configuration Impact

After the undo icmp receive command is run, the device no longer process ICMP messages of a certain type, causing the host to fail to ping the device.


If the network status is normal and the device is required to receive ICMP messages, you can run the icmp receive command.


# Disable the device from receiving ICMP messages with the type number being 3 and the code number being 1.
