AP -- constant ping outbound

I’ve blocked the every 1 second outbound icmp traffic on ipv4/6 to ping.alta.inc from the AP’s. Will this cause any functionality loss?

@carrottspc It should only be once every 30 seconds, as long as there are no drops.

This only affects the AP’s ability to detect if it is online, and if you have the Always On option disabled, it will cause the AP to stop broadcasting when it detects itself as offline.

Sorry for the confusion. Once looking deeper, each AP is definitely doing an outgoing ping once every 30 seconds. I needed to filter out to individual AP ip address instead of looking at all (3 total) at once. I want them all online 24x7x365, so I do have the ‘always on’ enabled.
