Is this machine using that iptables with the special line for icmp?
You know, the one I suggested should not be there.
**That** line would make icmp "work" when nothing else does.
Avoid the entire firewall dance for the moment . . .
Set the default policy of all three main chains to "ACCEPT" with no other rules.
Save that three statement config file wherever "diags" is picking up its iptable_save file.
After sshd (or telnetd or ftpd or ...) is working, then deal with setting up the firewall.
