Firstly, verify that the edge switch has the correct default-gateway x.x.x.x or that one is configured? Without one, the switch will not know where to forward the replies. Is it only ICMP or are you unable to telnet to this same edge switch

The reason that you can telnet to another switch in the same location and then ping or telnet to other switch is probably because the management IP is on the same subnet.

The defaul-gateway ip address should be the same on these other edge switches which you can reach.

Is there an ACL inbound on the WAN gateway? If there is ensure that it permit ICMP and Telent for this switch.
