#5480 closed defect (fixed)

firewall: default rule should be allow ping, or else traffic should be dropped

Ping is useful, and the router is visible anyway because the firewall rules return a reject response, so I think ping (and maybe a couple of other icmp types) should be allowed by default because of their usefulness.

Otherwise, the router should be made to be not visible by dropping blocked packets.
