Can PIX 506e return ICMP port unreachable on Linux traceroute with UDP data gram, and if somebody knows how, can you make an example of the access-list how it should be written to allow this response?

PIX won't return an ICMP port unreachable message and access lists cannot be configured to make PIX to respond a port unreachable.

Is the PIX designed in this way or every firewall can't return ICMP port unreachable.
