I am attempting it by using echo command and it gives me the below error

+++++++++++++
t040ml000002:/proc/sys/net/ipv4 # echo “1” > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/icmp_echo_ignore_all
-bash: /proc/sys/net/ipv6/icmp_echo_ignore_all: No such file or directory
+++++++++++++

How can I configure it?

  • What kind of router are you using that still allows people to ping the broadcast address? – cutrightjm Sep 14 '16 at 6:57

    That sysctl variable is only for IPv4. – Rui F Ribeiro Sep 14 '16 at 9:30

    IPv6 doesn't have a broadcast address... – Sander Steffann Sep 14 '16 at 14:20
  • Your code is using "smart quotes". Is that a consequence of your web browser or are they actually what you typed in your shell? You must only use ' or ", definitely not or . – roaima Sep 15 '16 at 9:48
