There is a problem with Windows firewall. If you try to make traceroute from
unix box to windows box it fails because it uses UDP protocol (Windows use
ICMP protocol). Only solution so far is to disable Windows firewall. If I put
rule to allow any to any and protocol any for both inside and outside it
fails too.

Is there any solution for this problem because disabling Windows firewall is
not an option?
