Unanswered Question
Sep 30th, 2009

Hi all,

I cannot ping my default gateway, and my default gateway connot ping me.

I've got a ASA 5520 with a 8.0.4 OS version.

I've configured the ACL on the interface with the

access-list int1-in extended permit icmp any any

and also added the command.

icmp permit any int1

There is no ACL on my default gateway (Cisco 6500 IOS). And my interface has a security level of 90 without any managgement configuration.

If you've got any ideas of what I can check it we very sweet !


I have this problem too.

Can you show :

1) Interface config

2) Ping from your PC

3) "arp -a" from your PC. If ICMP is block , firewall will still respond to ARP.

Please make sure that you have following commands at the top. There should be no icmp deny echo/echo-reply above the permit statements.

icmp permit any echo-reply outside

icmp permit any echo outside
