How can I ping more than one WAN IP from LAN?

I just followed this article up.(

It was not work well. I have to ping X1 WAN IP and X3 WAN IP.

The article is an example to allow any LAN device to ping the X1 WAN IP only.

But I want to allow any LAN device to ping all of WAN IP.

I have been selected management "ping" on interfaces.

I created a access rule

And a NAT policy

When I ping X1 and X3 from LAN, that all responds X3 WAN IP…

Did I have wrong setting?

    Hi @Nick

    you need a NAT rule LAN -> Original, X1 IP -> Original, Ping -> Original and an Access Rule which allows LAN -> WAN from LAN net to X1 IP and the important detail here is to mark this rule as Management Rule, without that check it'll not work.

    Same goes for X3 as well.
