Watchguard Edge devices missing ping utility

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

The ability to ping from a firewall is a fantastic and some might say essential tool for troubleshooting network (in particular routing) issues. It is for this reason that pretty much every major commercial firewall product out there has this ability (even Sonicwalls). Yet for some reason the Watchguard Edge’s do not. Why this is I have no idea, I could speculate but it wouldn’t be very complimentary.

    I've been looking for reviews on watchgaurd firewalls. So far I've found a lot of complaints about them, but I have to take them with a grain of salt. I was wondering what your overall impressions of watchguard firewalls are? I'm also looking at sonicwall NSA series.
