Hi Suresh,

Have you allowed ICMP on the PIX interface?

icmp permit

Hi Suresh,

My debug advices are:

1. Enable debug ip icmp on router and debug icmp trace on the firewall. From each device try to ping the other and see if the ICMP echo request/reply reaches it.

2. Traceroute from one device to the other and check which route it takes. Since they are directly connected this should be just one step, but perhaps you have a typo on your subnets or something.

Also, can you ping from the router to the firewall? You seem to imply the problem is only from the firewall to the router and in that case it's definitely an access rule.

I don't think it should and maybe that's the problem. Can you post your configuration here?
