Firewall Interface Not Responding to Pings

L3 Networker

Hello Community,


My firewall won't respond to pings. My Palo Alto sits within a VM. 


At first I thought it was because the mac address in my ESXi didn't match the mac address on the interface, but then I noticed none of my other interfaes match with my ESXi, but they all seem to work. see image




Its just ethernet interface 1/4 that doesn't work. Even though it matches with my ESXi, see image





I have configured the interface to allow ping, but I still can't ping 


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated... as this should just simply work.

What do the logs say?

Does traffic even come to FW? If not, it's not PA issue (yet).

Is it allowed? Where is the reply routed to?

is there a generic any any drop rule ? this would override the implied intrazone allow policy that would allow the ping to reach the interface
