you can't ping the far side interface of a pix or asa...ever.

you can ping hosts on the other side of a pix/asa though - just follow the aforementioned link.

(you just have to allow echo-replies from the hosts you're trying to ping).

from an inside host, you should be able to ping the router though, once you allow echo-replies back into the network.

to ping from outside to inside, allow echo's into the network.
