By default in Windows Server 2016 the Windows Firewall is configured to block all inbound ICMP traffic. This includes requests that are common from ping, which can make network troubleshooting difficult.
So to enable ping, you won't need to disable the firewall in your VPS, the guide will show how to only allow the specific rules required to allow ping to succeed.
Note: It only allows IPv4 requests in, if you need IPv6 then you will need to enable the File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request – ICMPv6-In) rule.
Note: If you want to disable ping, just change from Enable Rule to Disable Rule.
