I have a fairly restrictive ipfw setup on  a FBSD 8.2-STABLE machine.
Pings were not getting through so I added this near the top
of the rule set:

   #####
   # Allow icmp
   #####

   ${FWCMD} add allow icmp from any to any


It does work but, two questions:

1) Is there a better way?
2) Will this cause harm or otherwise expose the server to some vulnerability?
